Once upon a time in a galaxy far far away the term “design” meant visual design and nothing more. However, in the modern world of mobile devices and glowing screens attached to people’s palms, this term keeps growing: VisD, UI, UX, just design… When it comes to creating a website, one may be confused with all these definitions out there. So if you are feeling a bit lost, we are here to help you up. Today, we will talk about wireframes vs design. Which solution is the best? But before we get started, let us provide a couple of definitions to make things clear.
A wireframe is a low-fidelity blueprint representing what goes where, without the web design agency having to spend time on the details. Wireframes are usually presented with placeholders and gray boxes for content; designers fill them in at a later stage of the process.
You can think of wireframes as models for sites, which can be either clicable, or static. They are all about functionality. Actually, a wireframe is a sketch demonstrating what elements could be added/deleted to/from your future website. For instance, a wireframe of a site will show you the placing of different elements, columns, main buttons, navigation. That is why wireframes are perfect for creating UX design.
