A list of 5 things to best know before beginning to design to help alleviate problems later on and to assist in a successful design approved by the client with ease.
Given that the client has already completed UX studies on his audience and the necessary market research, a user flow should be present to help understand the goals of each section of the website and in the order it will be presented to the user.

There are times that the wireframe seems perfect for the scenario yet when presented with the live content the original grid structure or layout can no longer handle the volume of content or the complexity of it. Know whether the section will be using icons, videos, images, etc and the restrictions that come with those elements on the live responsive website.
