Michael Gaigg: Über UI/UX Design

Powerpoint Wireframe Stencils as Free Download

The last couple of weeks were pretty busy for me. We were trying to design an application that has potential to grow beyond national importance and get high visibility. Needless to say expectations are high. Time constraints aside, my focus was to extract the goal of the application and streamline the user experience, do I sound like a marketing person yet?

Powerpoint Wireframes

In order to get quick and accurate feedback from our client I wanted to create visuals as early as possible. That's when Microsoft Powerpoint came in handy. I created wireframe mockups and iterated through the slides via video conference which turned out to be not only useful but essential to the mutual understanding. The client was able to adjust their process, our project managers increased their knowledge about the domain and our developers identified potential issues with integrating our mapping software.

During the process of designing the wireframes I created my own set of Powerpoint stencils that covers all common interface elements as well as a set of small icons.

Example Usage

Just recently I started to redesign www.actress.at, the website of my sister who is an actress currently located in Berlin, Germany.
What better opportunity than this to put the wireframe stencils into work. After talking with her for some time over the phone I got a good sense of what her vision is based on the needs of job. Together with some photos from her agency and videos from youtube I created the following three mockups:

Mockup for Eva Gaigg's redesigned webpage actress.at

Mockup for the Homepage of Eva Gaigg's redesigned webpage actress.at

Mockup for Eva Gaigg's redesigned webpage actress.at

Mockup for a page inside the navigation architecture, in this case videos but also applicable for photos and other presentation items.

Mockup for the response form, probably a critical part of the application since this will be the butter on the bread.

Next Step: XHMTL Prototype

Following the wireframes exercise we created a color palette and implemented an XHTML prototype which roughly took us 3 days. Screen snapshots fed another set of Powerpoint slides for the big demo and will eventually go into the design doc as well. So far, so good.

Help me to improve the stencils

I really hope the wireframe stencils will be helpful for your work (as they made my life easier). I am interested in your opinion. What is missing? What can be improved? Send me your suggestions, ideas, updates 🙂
