Long Page Sketches

Thursday, September 10th, 2009

Quite often user interface pages will have to be long and scroll. As obvious as it sounds, here is a sketch which supports this. Jason has simply decreased the size of his frames and made them taller. On the same note, one of his sketches also makes use of a zigzagged line. I would guess that has been done to suggest a continuation of sorts, allowing him to communicate that there is more to the page without having to go into detail. I also like the heavy emphasis used on the title. Nice!

Page Crop Marks

Tuesday, July 28th, 2009

Here is a quick way of setting page boundaries on long scrolling pages. Aluísio has applied and made visible some sort of page crop marks on his wireframe. This approach could be used to give a stronger sense of the relationship between the wireframe and the page screen to show what is visible and what is beyond the fold.

Showing Masked & Scrollable Areas

Sunday, January 4th, 2009

Often we need to represent interfaces which scroll and/or are masked. These interface elements only display a limited area at one time from within a larger one. Here is one idea on how to tackle this. In this example, the masked area has been isolated from the page view, with a boundary drawn around it. Elements which are outside of the boundary represent the invisible or masked elements at that particular time.
