7 golden rules on how to sketch wireframes

After creating sketches and wire frames for multiple projects, I felt let us try to recollect what I have learned so far. The best thing I can
saw that most of stakeholders are blind to wireframes and sketches. They come up in the meeting with an idea that they are going to get some colorful and flashy.

Now how to overcome such a situation, the best part is to make the expectations clear. Before staring the work prepares a present explain what they will get in from the association.

See the presentation that I had created for Universal Music group (Vevo.com) stakeholders to make their expectations clear.

Tips for sketching

1. Use less lines

The less lines you use the better it becomes to explain the concept. More lines create clutter and confusion.

2. Use thick lines outside the main boxes and points of stress. Using thicker lines make the design clean and visually pleasing

3. Render the borders to give the computer sleek looks

4. Avoid too much detailing of elements – such as minimize, maximize buttons

5. Scan the sketches and send via e-mail. Most stakeholders would love to see something in e-mail. They can easily share it with their teams and seek their views on it.

6. Sketch in batches – don’t ever sketch the complete software in one go. First sketch the home page of the software. If you get a green flag go ahead and sketch more. Otherwise you need to again sketch from scratch if your home page design got rejected.

7. Focus on the element on hand – do not sketch the outside section again and again.

These are the 7 golden rules that will make your sketch stand out and get a good name.
