The functional design gives shape to the mass of requirements. It identifies and defines the specifics of the interface, navigation and information designs.

The output of this stage is a clear presentation of the whole project design, which acts as a way to communicate with the client, visual designers, content creators, and developers.

The stages of preparing the functional design include:
Defining the product taxonomy, including a taxonomy related to the content area.
Project Objectives & Expectations
Drawing users flows (showing step by step, how important tasks will be performed by different users).
Drawing the wireframes, based on the taxonomy and user flows. It’s especially important here to choose the correct
      labels for links and menus, to group tasks/menu items under the most logical clusters and to highlight important
      tasks which are usually buried inside the application.

Every effort is devoted to creating a functional design which has a superb user interface that’s intuitive and easy to use for all the types of users defined in the planning stages, and will provide them with a fulfilling user experience.
