Below are ten ‘wireframes’ of incredibly popular websites. Wireframes are sketch plans of website/app/program designs, and I used the brilliant Balsamiq Mock-ups to make these. These are the UK versions of the sites, and are the front page or login pages as appropriate. How many can you name?
Website One: MSN Live – for CV-unfriendly, spam-filled, advert smothered email fans
Website Two: Google. Course it was here.
Website Three: Twitter.
Website Four: Facebook. Count those boxes!
Website Five: BBC. Too…much…content…
Website Six: Wikipedia. Texual Overdose
Website Seven: eBay. Yum.
Website Eight: Amazon. Oh, it’s *Amazon* who sell Kindles!
Website Nine: Yahoo. I was dreading the wireframe of this. With good reason.
Website Ten: YouTube – far more different than I remember it being.
