How to Wireframe a Conceptual Website
A conceptual website, or a website wireframe, acts as a blueprint to the website's design and functionality. Before any content or visual features are added, a wireframe is used to form the structure of the website, including its functionalities and user interactions.
By nature, wireframing is used at the beginning of a web development project by web developers and UI designers. It is an essential UI design element, as it visually shows what elements will be on the site. Amendments to it are much easier done than on concept designs. Additionally, its simple layout makes it easy for non-technical clients to understand and give feedback on.
