    Thanks for the update, Glenn. And working to fit existing designs (even those underway) can always be tricky, so I appreciate your thoughts.

    Usually I’m lucky enough to work with a number of projects with my own web design ‘partner’ so we can nut out the best way to marry the content and design (I usually send her an early draft so she can mock it up for our clients), but there are still plenty of jobs where the copy has to fit what’s there already.

    Definitely time to consider upgrading from Word to something a little more capable.

      Like you, Anna, I gravitated towards a designer very early on. I’ve been working with Ian, my biz partner now, since 2002. I used to send Word drafts, but he much prefers the wireframe. It streamlines the start of the design significantly. Almost enough to offset my anal usability feedback and browser testing! ;-)

        Not really sure I need to know about your anal usability feedback Glenn ;-)

    I’ve been on a team where the web designer and I have been working pretty much independently. (Which is sad considering we sit about five metres from each other.) Unfortunately I usually have to crowbar my copy into the design, which is never a good thing.

    Thanks for asking the questions Kate and Anna, and thanks for posting your answers, Glenn.

      Ha! “Crowbar” and “copy”… Two words that should never appear in the same sentence…

    Hey Glenn

    I too am a huge fan of Balsamiq and have used it for IA for a little while now. But I hadn’t thought about combining the two. It’s a great idea and I think would really help a client understand the core elements, header, footer, right hand panels, navigation.

    Also useful for home pages where often the design is a bit more elaborate – it’s hard to explain to all clients – what a slider is etc.

    Thanks for sharing your methods I may well steal your idea. Perhaps not for the whole deck, but for the proof of style section.

    Great post.
