Description

A wireframe is a very simple representation, limited to functional aspects, of user interfaces on digital devices (computers, tablets, smartphones or smartwatches). Buttons, navigation icons, arrangements and displays are shown here to collect initial feedback on the ideas from test users.

The aim is to use these wireframes to determine functions and arrangements for further prototypes as quickly as possible. Mostly simple drawings on paper, Post-it or cardboard are used.
