When you are creating do your designs, do you do any planning steps, or just kinda wing it as you go?

For instance, do you draw it out first, then design? After designing do you plan out how to split up the file, and how you will be coding it beforehand?

Whenever I get a idea I draw it instantly. If you plan all your steps you reduce the mistakes which can happen.

No. Just so when things don’t go according to plan, I don’t freak out ^^

It’s good to have some structure though, else you’d freak out anyway :)

Yeah, I’ve always just wing’ed it and I get the feeling if I’d just of planned better I wouldn’t be hitting half of the mistakes that I do. I’m not a very good artist at drawing, so my ideas get drawn straight into Fireworks, and tweaked from there.

We always plan everything. And then we do it in a completely different way :)

That one sounds very familliar haha. Myself, i start of with a very basic scetch, after the design is finished i think about the html structure for like 10 mins.

That’s it really, most of the time i think of new things while im working :)

Well for me it depends, mostely I draw a quick sketch of what my goal is.

Now i’m working on a clean simple theme and I didn’t draw a sketch from it. So it really depends ;)

I always sketch the idea, then wire frame the main layouts, then move to PSD and slicing, and then finally add the tweaks like jQuery or WordPress conversion.

When there’s a fork in the road, design-wise, I look to my goals. Does one direction get me closer to those goals? Have I met the most important goals? I make my decision based on the answers to those questions.
