Wireframe +

The new project we will be undertaking is in the wireframe diagramming stage. Normally, this would be a simple click through demo in HTML, but we felt that you couldn’t get a sense of what would actually be going on from this alone. So in order to skip a back and forth exchange of confusion and explanation between us and the client, we are instead making an animated simulation of sorts using flash animation. This will still save time like the wireframe is intended to do because in this stage the client needs a visual to approve so that we can confirm that we are all on the same page before we move completely in one direction with the actual involved work. The complexity of this project, which involves flash programming, flash animation, and Internet video all combined into one seamless application, makes it hard to represent the functionality in a flat 2D click-through wireframe. I imagine it would be much, much harder for the client to visualize in action as well, which is where the back and forth of questions and answers would begin. So while this may end up taking a bit more time to create than your usual wireframe, it will hopefully still save time and help everyone visualize the goal product more easily.
