Does the wireframe …
- Ease of use / usability / navigation – for specific interactions and overall site experience
- Confirm understandings and check for misunderstandings of information
- Avoiding Incompleteness and overcompleteness of information – getting the information that is needed at the right time versus not being overloaded with content that they don’t need.
- Match expectations – giving users the right information in the right form/tone at the right time. Exceed expectations, if done well, can give a positive experience.
- Avoid annoyances (discomfort, uncertainty, confusion) – any tasks for which users have to think too long, look around frantically on the site or page, or hesitate to long
- Meet the needs – allow users to accomplish their goals and tasks
- Images should not distract from the main call-to-action.
- Images should not look as if they’re clickable if they are not
- The call-to-action should stand out using contrast (see Call to Action book, page 92)
