SharePoint Wireframes

If you spend anytime at all doing interface design work you know the value-added from wireframes early on in the development process. It helps to point the customer to what’s important in the early-going, namely, labels, location of content, navigation, etc while not worrying about the font or what color the background is going to be. It’s this stage that information architects flex their muscles.

I have created a wireframe for MOSS 2007. It is based on the master page that comes out-of-the-box with SharePoint 2007. If you want to make it WSS-specific, all you really have to do is remove the “My Site” and “My Links” in the top-right navigation bar.

The two formats available are a Visio template (.vst) and a PDF. I made use of the GUUUI Visio stencil kit in Visio 2007, but it should open fine in 2003. If you don’t have Visio you can use the PDF.

    Hi there, It is excellent to see such good resources becoming available for SharePoint. There is a really cool set of SharePoint Visio resources at http://www.visio-for-shrepoint.com. There is more than 1000 shapes for Design and Architecture. Well worth a look.
