A Web wireframe is a simple visual guide to show you what a Web page would look like. It suggests the structure of a page, without using any graphics or text. A website wireframe would show the entire site structure – including what pages link to where.

Web wireframes are a great way to start your design work. And while it’s possible to create complex wireframes with huge amounts of detail, your planning can start with a napkin and a pen. The key to making good wireframes is to leave out all visual elements. Use boxes and lines to represent pictures and text.
