E-commerce Link: Design by Wire
Also, make it clear to clients that the fold will land differently for different users depending on their personal screen resolutions and the number of browser toolbars installed. Appropriate expectations now will save difficult conversations down the road.
4. Present in person or with a screen-sharing tool. You want to be able to read the temperature of the room through your clients' body language and facial expressions. In person, you can control the pace of the conversation and pause to clarify or respond to questions if necessary. You also can direct your clients' attention to make sure they're looking at the parts of the document you're describing and fully understanding the interactions that you've designed.
5. Create a framework to collect feedback and give explicit direction. Your meeting isn't quite over when your presentation is complete. Spend the last 10 minutes reviewing your expectations for feedback. It's not enough to say, "we're hoping to hear from you with comments by EOD Thursday," and leave it at that.
Create a template (an Excel matrix works well) to help your clients organize and consolidate their comments. This will ensure you're getting the information you need to make requested updates. Your matrix can include (among others) columns like: Issue Number, Issue Name, Wireframe Title, Issue Description, Priority Level and Reported By.
This feedback template is also a good place to remind your clients, in writing, about the types of things they should be looking for and commenting on. Comments should be about what the site does, not what it looks like.
6. Track design and copy issues separately. Inevitably, you will receive some comments that are more relevant to design and copy teams than they are to the wires. Track these design comments on a separate tab of your feedback spreadsheet and hand them over to the graphic design team when they kickoff their look and feel concepting work.yy
