    Or do you just wing it with a few ideas and see where that takes you?

    I wing it when I get started, but by the end every single pixel in my designs is planned carefully. Same with the business models and every other aspect. I'm the type who performs best when I just jump in to whatever the situation is.

    Depends. On my own projects I wing it. On clients I plan to every detail.

    i plan the SEO aspect of it

    that means semantic coding

    and source order of the document (ie: content being first in the source, but not necessarily shown up first in the page)

    I life revolved around a white board at school for the better part of 3 weeks during one project. Drawing little charts, etc of how things were going to go together. I was hoping to have an 'office' at my apartment so I could hang white boards but it didn't work out that way.


    For me, I try to plan things completely but I learned that really doesn't work. Really just takes building a solid framework that will accept what you want to add/change in the future.
