This post is all about multiple online tools to create wireframing for a new website and start a new business. Most of the references are from an excellent class on Coursera on Startup Engineering
. I have listed them here for a quick reference.
Most of the design principles today rest on responsive design
, a webpage that floats and re-adjusts itself based on the device and screen-size. Writing pixel-perfect and custom CSS for such a design in a time-consuming task.
- Twitter bootstrap is the authoritative style for such design. Here is a link
- There is a web-based, template-based WYSWYG tool for quickly building bootstrap'ed websites: Jetstrap
- Other notable resources are: (1) Themoforest , A set of paid webpage themes (2) 99Designs , still more expensive and (3) dribbble, more like StackOverflow for design. You can also hire a designer on a contract.
Finally, reading Design books might also be a viable option for non-designers. The Non-Designer's Design Book
by Robin Williams is an excellent starting point.
