Wireframing

Wireframing is a way to design a website service or app at the structural level. A wireframe is commonly used to lay out content and functionality on a page which takes into account user needs and user journeys.

Importance of Wireframing

Wireframes allow you to map out the functionality of the pages, catch problems early, and save time and money on revisions later. This step ignores colours and images completely so we can focus on the core functionality and optimise the project UX.

To make changes to wireframes is a simple and cost effective process meaning functional flows can be edited on the fly. Quite simply, wireframing, before commencing development, will likely save both time and money and ensure the end product meets your requirements.

Types of Wireframes

Understand the different types of wireframes that best suits your project needs.

wireframe-basic-layout-icon

Basic wireframes

Usually designed in black and white and offer a brief overview of the website build and structure.

wireframe-layout-icon

Annotated wireframes

Brief notes are added on the sides and bottom of the wireframe that describes each item and function.

wireframe-basic-layout-flow-icon

User flow wireframes

Slightly more information is required to display the user experience of the website or app. This may include a collection of multiple wireframes or a slideshow annotating key functions.

wireframe-interactive-icon

Interactive high-definition wireframes

This is the most detailed version of wireframing where we include specific interactions like clicks and swipes between different views in an interactive way, giving a very detailed view of how the software will flow.

Check out some of our projects where quality wireframing was vital to the end result.
