In a nutshell, wireframes are like baby shoes. Don't put too much expense into them because they'll be grown out of before you know it.

I employ a technique I call "MVW" Minimum Viable Wireframes : Put the least amount of effort into the wireframe that conveys the design and purpose to it's intended audience. If a napkin sketch gets the point across, great. If it's a whiteboard sketch that you and the developer make together and take a picture of, go with it. (My favorite) Both of ...

What i do is descibe every element on its own, and include the mockup of that particular part. So the section can be named "homepage elements" then one part would be: introduction carousel... then a screen shot of that element alone is added. Refrain from adding colors, use lorem ipsums, and use wired boxes instead of shaded ones, it gives the feeling of a ...

I agree with Henry, and can suggest one of those apps that make roughish looking wireframes: Balsamiq. It creates a sketch-style mockup which when needed, can be reproduced as a finished wireframe. I don't use it (I use OmniGraffle) but have considered switching over because of clients sometimes seeing the loose WF as the definitive design. Here's the ...

This may sound funny but I am not joking... Make crummy looking mockups. Find some design software that lets you render your ideas as imitation pencil-drawings, preferably one with multiple-colored pencils available. Use that software to render any UI elements and dummy text in pale grays, so that they are clearly inferior to the Clean Bold Dark Type ...

The problem with putting the "change password" functionality on the page is that you risk confusing the user. Consider the following (slightly modified) screenshot of an actual forum's "edit profile" page: Is a user who wants to add an ICQ number to their profile required to change their password while doing so?

Having the 'forgot password' on another 'view' is not necessarily bad if you're able to influence how the developer implements the page transitions. Consider using one of these very smooth page transitions examples like a flip, slide in etc which allows the user to quickly view the 'hidden' forgot password view or navigate back to the normal landing view.

Overall this looks like a great start. However, consider the following points to help streamline the UX making your design more efficient and easier to use. If possible make one purpose per page. You don't want a password form validation error scenario on the Promo Code page. One purpose pages are also favorable for keyboard/enter form submissions. ...

What does the "Change password" link actually do? If it shows a modal pop-up over this page, then I think a link is ok. A link could also be good to display the form inline when requested - that way the page isn't cluttered until the user needs the form, and maintains the same context. If it actually takes you to another page, it seems a bit odd. Why ...
