A Designer’s Guide to Prototyping Ajax

Category: Ajax, Design

Particletree has posted two parts in a series for designers trying to develop site structures that will use Ajax for some of their functionality – “A Designer’s Guide to Prototyping Ajax”.

In part one, they look at how:

They introduce various skills the designer will need to accomplish the job – relationship skills, XHTML skills, and CSS skills.

Part two of the series

In the second part of A Designer’s Guide to Prototyping Ajax, learn about some of the wireframing techniques we use to prep an interface design for prototyping.

…gets more into things like keyframing (different versions for different events), stacking (layering the possibilities in one file to avoid multiple versions), using useful class names in your CSS, and using the CSS boolean.
