Wireframing is one of the most crucial steps of any mobile or web development project. It is a visual representation of the user interface, content, layout and hierarchy that helps to understand the potential problems early in the process.

With wireframes, it is easy to communicate ideas, reduce project cost and focus purely on functions and user interactivity.

It allows you to work on the basic navigation and layout structure of the website before the actual process start. Without wireframes, you may face multiple problems and ultimately failing to meet the client requirements. As an information architect, it outlines the basic details of each page that help both designer and developer understand the functionality of each page.

The whole process gives you an opportunity to make changes prior to the actual starting of visual design and save your precious time. But if done inefficiently, it can create bigger headaches for both the client and the designer.
