Alternative to Wireframes: Prioritized Lists.
The stage between gathering information for a site and creating designs in Photoshop is always a bit murky. Sometimes it’s wireframes, sometimes it ends up being just a laundry list of statements and concepts. Sacha Greif has, if nothing else, a term I had never heard used to describe that per-page list: a Prioritized List comprised of goals and elements arranged in a most- to least-important hierarchy. I’ll be trotting out this technique in an official capacity as soon as I can.
