The Skeleton

Every design needs a first draft. Three is even better! Brainstorming different ideas gives you several advantages over just charging down the first path you think of:

  1. The first idea is probably not going to be the best idea.
  2. By having several ideas, your ego is not wrapped up in one specific idea. You'll feel free to critique any particular design more, thus improving it.
  3. You can compare and contrast the different designs. And you can mix and match parts from each.

Thus, here are the very first design ideas for a yarn ecommerce site. They're just rough navigational skeletons at this point. Tap any of the images below to open an interactive pdf of the idea, created in Balsamiq.
