Planning Your Web Design With Sketches

Sketching has some advantages to digital wireframes or even digital drawing. It’s portable, approachable, creative and time-tested. There’s nothing simpler than paper and pencil — or pen. I’ve found, too, that clients tend to find the work informal enough that they can suggest changes and make edits. Fully rendered comps look “finished” or nearly complete. I think that can hamper a client’s willingness to suggest improvements or changes. Sketches are loose, friendly, informal… you can erase them and change them.
