Colouring Clickables in WireframesJanuary 25th, 2009
Sometime ago I felt a need to represent in wireframes everything that could be clickable or actionable. This came largely from people asking me where one could click on inside a wireframe during presentations. When I just presented black and white screens it was not always easy for them to distinguish standard content areas from clickables and people would ask for confirmation. For this reason I began using one colour, usually red, to denote any interface areas, buttons, or text links that could be acted upon. In this regard, I found that this justified and consistent use of colour worked out pretty well.
