Day 2 of #100DaysofCode: Comps & Wireframes

Original date: July 25, 2020

Today’s Topic: Comps & Wireframes

In my SkillCrush course, this particular module is in the Web Design Fundamentals Course.

The focus was on creating a wireframe for a personal portfolio page.
Main Notes:

I created a style tile to guide the design with typography, colors, gradients and buttons.

I create a lo-fi wireframe via Photoshop.

I made a hi-fi wireframe via Photoshop.

Main Takeaways:
I really like web design.

I don’t mind making web comps but making them intuitively and with a higher grade of discernment of usability and simplicity is going to have to be the next focus.
I’m partial on lo-fi wireframes.

It’s a little harder for me to visual what I need with a lo-fi wireframe and maybe that’s just because I haven’t seen lo-fis in the brainstorming process with like a team but on my own, probably not my go-to thing.
Making the wireframe, I realized I may be handing my developer a headache.

The thought came to mind that I may be designing something with functionality and intention but I have to be aware of the languages that my team and company are currently using to know whether we have the bandwidth to create certain features.
