You'll love this Expert Guide from HOW if:
- You are planning a new web design
- Site maps and wire frames don't deliver the results you need
- You want to ensure your website is developed to your design specifications
Since the beginning of the web, many approaches have been taken to plan the structure and information architecture of websites that are, on the whole, ineffective. Methods such as site maps and wire frames are still in wide employ as the primary planning documents for many web projects, despite being woefully inadequate for the task.

Essentially, prototyping means building a model of the website before you build the actual website. This guide explains the process and important things to keep in mind when prototyping your own website project.
