Today got a task to draw wireframe prototype for a project, at first didn’t knew what is Wireframe, www.uxbooth.com quoted,

 

“Like most things today, the world of interaction design moves quickly. Although a pen and notebook may suffice when it comes to simply jotting down ideas, planning a series of website screens can sometimes demand additional precision and cohesion.”
