What is a Wireframe?

A website wireframe, is a visual guide that represents the website layout without focusing on design.  Wireframes are created for the purpose of arranging elements of the layout so that it can be presented to clients before the design stage starts. The wireframe displays the arrangement of the website’s content, including interface elements and navigational systems, and how they work together.


What are wireframes used for in the Web/UX Design?

In the web design, wireframes are used in client presentations to showcase variations of website layouts based on Project Specification. That way it can be easier for the clients to guide you on what they want to see in the website, what is missing or what makes the site complicated in terms of functionality. In this stage of the web site building process is much easier to apply major changes than on the design. Once we agree on the functionality we are ready to move on to the design.

Does every website needs a wireframe?

Genuinely, before every new website designs starts, is good to have a wireframe for it. That way on the design, the layout will be almost on point or if its not it will require very small adjustments.
