Know how wireframe designs help you with layouts

What is wireframing?

You have a client who wants to design a website from scratch. Not just that, they also want to see the page and site layout along with the structure of the web elements even before designing it.

How can this be done? The answer is wireframes.

With a wireframe, you can create a layout and keep your clients informed about their web page layouts and other elements.

Typically, a wireframe is defined as the flow of a website, which can also be called a Blueprint. It shows how the website will appear. A wireframe is commonly used to plan the layout of the content and functionality defined. While they are used to establish the basic structure of a page before framing a visual design, they do not include any styling, colour or graphics.

What is the purpose of wireframes? 

Multiple purposes can be attained with wireframes. It can help to connect the information structure to its visual design by showing the path between websites, concepts and features of a website and connecting it with the virtual design.

1. Helps in client-understanding of website design 

It is easier to explain the structure of a website with the help of a wireframe because a client does not know how the function works and what a particular section of a website is called. You can walk your client through their website with a wireframe. This gives clients a clear understanding of how their website will look like once it is ready.

2. Quick to create 

The website wireframe design can be created quickly and shown to the client who, in turn, expresses his/her ideas for the website. This can be incorporated easily in the wireframe. Happy client, happy you!

Types of wireframes

Wireframes are commonly low fidelity and high fidelity. Let’s explore! 

1. Low-fidelity wireframes

A low-fidelity wireframe is a basic webpage, wherein you match the client's requirement. Here, scale grids and pixels are not taken into account. It contains the information provided by a client.

2. High-fidelity wireframes

High fidelity wireframes are pixel perfect and made keeping in mind all the points decided in low-fidelity wireframes. These wireframes are created in a way to portray the content and images as they will appear on the website as also the flow of the website.
