What is a Wireframe?

In the context of web design, a wireframe is a basic visual representation or blueprint of a website or application that outlines its structure and content layout. It is a simple, low-fidelity design that shows the skeleton of the website or application, without any visual design elements such as colors, typography, or images.

Wireframes are typically created early in the design process to help designers and stakeholders visualize the overall layout and organization of the website or application before the design is fully developed. They are used to plan and organize the content and functionality of the site, and to ensure that the user experience is intuitive and efficient.

A wireframe usually consists of boxes, lines, and simple shapes that represent the various elements of the site or application, such as navigation menus, headers, content blocks, images, and buttons. The wireframe may also include notes or labels that describe the purpose and function of each element.

Wireframes can be created using various tools, including paper and pencil, whiteboards, or digital software such as Adobe XD, Sketch, or Figma. They can be presented to stakeholders for feedback and approval before the design is refined and developed further.
