Online News: Skinning Wireframes (Hmm...sounds questionable)

I'm not much of a fan of the phrase skinning wireframes, but it will suffice for now.

Although our wireframes are still in development during this phase, we choose one screen to build out with three different aesthetic directions. It was a slow starting process so I created a couple of key terms for each direction to help get the ball rolling. It's still a work in process so I'm pretty sure I missed the mark on some of terms I choose below.

Neutral & Simple 
Elegant & Nostalgic
Editable & Friendly (Eh...it's process)


  1. i hate that phrase too. we should create some new language.

  2. I referred to it as "dressing" in a another post, but it doesn't sound quite right either.
