When applied to building block a website or similar work product, a Visual Guide can be an intermediate step toward the end goal of a complete website. By creating a visual guide along the way, the designer or developer can get buy-in from the other people involved in the website such as the customer, their manager and other members of the team.
A visual guide could be a wireframe, creative composition or information architecture. A device that will enable collaboration will save time, decreasing the chance of work having to be completely redone. A manager could create a visual guide for the team to complete the build-out.
Paper prototype could be an excellent way to develop Visual Guides.
