I am re-reading the book The Elements of User Experience by Jesse James Garrett to update and realign myself with the basics of my design work.
My primary goal is to establish a system that could aid in producing visual designs that are anchored to an abstract entity such as an Information Architecture document. Could this be possible? We will find out in this journey as I modify and add to this knowledge.
Here is a modified illustration of Jesse James Garrett’s diagram:
|Planes||Elements of UX||UI Design Perspective||Front-End Design Perspective|
|Surface||Visual Design||Style Guide||CSS|
|Skeleton||Information Design: Interface Design, Navigation Design||Wireframes||HTML|
|Structure||Information Architecture, Interaction Design||Content Outline, Interaction Diagram||HTML|
|Scope||Content Requirements, Functional Specifications||Content Document, Product Requirements Document|
|Strategy||User Needs, Business Objectives, Site Objectives||Product Requirements Document|
This is only a rough draft. The UI Design and Front-End Design columns show what I am working on.
Stay tuned for more updates.
