Reason for wireframe to design a mobile app

2 Min 4 Sec to read

UI / UX Design


A Wire-Frame is a childlike line drawing describing the layout of an app screen before any decoration to be added. The wireframes usually used by UX / UI creative director, web or app designers and business development team for client acquisition. It is typically the next step in app design after the mapping. Designers use this skeletal frame presentation to show clients or other stakeholders how page elements will relate to one another and functions. It outlines size, placement and orientation of every part of the mobile application






As the name suggests, a Wire-Frame is the design’s skeletal frame. For example, like how we first design a blueprint for building a house. Once the layout of the Wire-Frame gets finalized, designers add all the flourishes and sets up that make a mobile app developed to visually understand – choosing color schemes, images and logos, then overlaying them atop the Wire-Frame like a paint by numbers painting to get approved by the client.







While designers are loves to play with color and form, and stakeholders are equally eager to see their website designs in full color, Wire-Frame is an opportunity to try multiple and mutually exclusive layouts in a form that is easy to work with or tear apart. The generic presentation is an asset to this process, as it takes a great deal less time to draw a Wire-Frame than a fully realized design.
