Part.3: Sitemap and Wireframe

The draft of sitemap and three wireframe styles

The site is planned to have sub-categories under the gallery (portfolio) section. It will be the multi-paged site to provide the best SEO result, with the planning 3 styles.

The first one features the navi-bar on the top which is supposed to be a more convenient UI especially to mobile device, like this site does. The second one have a seperated navi bar, look like this or this one. The third one is similar to the second but more simple, just features a plain background to show the navi-bar with letter, like this or this one.

The wireframe of contents

There are the plans of the pages for contents, which features the seamless gallery, which shows the pop-up after clicking every thumbnail.
