In any IT project today, wireframes are working hand in hand with the design process. This is because a wireframe cut out from design will most certainly turn out to be useless, because a wireframe split from design is like singing without playing.
The agile method
The integration wireframes in the design process is rather new and was influenced by the rise of agile methodology. Here is a video of a sketchy wireframe evolving into a final website design made with Justinmind… in real-time and in 5 minutes.
Justinmind, a new kind of wireframing/prototyping tool
This very impressive designing process (because fast and straightforward): creating a wireframe and transforming it in a real final design, is a good illustration of the power Justinmind Prototyper. The main advantage of this tool is that it allows non-developers to build not only functional design, but even fully operational dynamic websites without coding.
Justinmind power and ease paves the way to a more fluid method mixing design and wireframes with the development processes to create better user experiences.
