Prototyping with OmniGraffle

Hi all,

I realize there isn't much talk on this list about how to prototype with OmniGraffle, so for those of you who use it to make your wireframes and deliverables, you may find this post I wrote useful:

Feel free to comment (on the post is probably best) with any follow up questions.

Realsitic Data in Wireframes/Prototypes/Mockups?

Hi All,

I have been thinking lately about the process for creating mockups and in particular, the data they display. I'm curious about whether the data should be more realistic or completely generic. Is one more effective than the other during client/stakeholders reviews? And so on...

I know you are all busy with work and life but if you can spare a moment and share your feedback regarding the questions below, I would be very appreciative.

What's best practice regarding style guides/prototypes/HMI guidelines/process for huge systems in huge corporations?

Let's say (hypothetically) you're working as an HFE-specialist for a major corporation developing huge situational awareness/command and control systems for many countries. The process for HFE/ID/UX is substandard and the interfaces are often put together by the programmers. 

Now what if you could decide how everything will work instead?  What would you do, what standards would you have the company adhere to? What would the processes you design look like? What key documents would be produced?

OK, big question. But where to start?

A hybrid prototype — the holy grail of wireframing

After reading through Zaki Warfel's Prototyping, I hoped it would shed light on the most effective techniques. It was a very good read and included some invaluable insights on progressively iterating from paper models to high fidelity designs. It's led me to make some assertions about prototyping tools...

Wireframes and prototypes: a waste of time?

I had a disheartening discussion with a programmer at our office yesterday. He felt that we should not "waste our time" with prototypes, or even wireframes! He said that our creative director found the wireframes limiting, and ended up giving back to us exactly the layout that was provided in the wireframes. I explained that the process of wireframing and prototyping helps work out the flow of content, the page requirements, online interactions,  and serves as a guide for design. And I said that many designers I'd worked with had been able to interpret the wireframes just fine.

Sketching before the Wireframes

Hi Folks,

I wanted to ask around on the process of creating wireframes for designing mobile applications. In creating these wireframes, should I work on paper before actually hopping into a drawing program to lay out these wireframes? I believe working on paper is faster and easier before laying out the wireframes for a project. However, the company I am working with, might be wondering if I am wasting my time. That I should be doing wireframes within the drawing program. What are your suggestions and thoughts on this issue?

The Documentation View of Design

I'd like to validate the following sentiment that dawned at me.

Wireframes and prototypes suggest primarily that the design solutions are
presented visually, annotated with callouts or footnotes at the sidebar.

However, the same thing can be also presented in form of documentation (text
or spreadsheet).
