What is Wireframing in more detail

Wireframing is a way to design a website service at the structural level. A wireframe is commonly used to lay out content and functionality on a page which takes into account user needs and user journeys. Wireframes are used early in the development process to establish the basic structure of a page before visual design and content is added.

See some examples below:

Typically wireframes are implemented during complex website and app development in order to give you the client a greater understanding of the overall project layout.

Do I need a wireframe?

Yes and No. For simple website design a wireframe is not typically needed, in fact a template is often used to give basic structure. If you are about to implement a complex bespoke web or app design then yes you will be better served if you have a wireframe to start with.
