Many projects require efforts from professionals with a variety of skills to come together to build a remarkable product. When a client sees a finished design, they are seeing the result of considerable time and effort. If the vision isn’t clear during production then the result of each individual’s work could lead to poor results. Wireframing and prototyping provide a structure for the team to follow to and accomplish a common goal.
A wireframe or prototype allows the client to get an idea of the design or function of something, allowing them to express whether or not it is headed in the right direction before the team has finished the project. Without offering this service to a client, a design agency is effectively creating more work by accepting altercations only after the team has delivered a product that they consider to be complete.
Wireframes and prototypes allow for test runs to determine if concepts of the functionality and design meet the expectations of the client. Oftentimes it can be difficult to conceptualize the intricacies of a project in early stages. Well-timed wireframing and prototyping stages allow for issues to become apparent and eliminated during crucial points in the development process. This means that by the time the project is complete, many of the complications will have been worked out and everyone will be pleased with the result.
