What is Wireframe

A wireframe is a graphic representation of a user interface, stripped of any visual design or branding elements. It is used by UI/UX designers to define the hierarchy of items on a screen and communicate what the items on that page should be based on users' needs.

To understand the wireframe better, just think about construction. The designer should draw the floor plan before adding paint and other decoration. From this perspective, a wireframe is the floor plan of your website and tells us where content should be placed.
