Wireframing is the first step in the design process, it’s where you lay out the structure and hierarchy of your design. A wireframe is a low-fidelity representation of your website or app, it’s used to communicate the overall structure and layout, without getting into too much detail.
There are many different ways to wireframe a Figma site, but in this article we’ll focus on two: using the Figma interface, and using third-party tools.
Using the Figma interface:
1. Create a new file, or open an existing one.
2. Click on the “frames” icon in the toolbar (it looks like a rectangle with four squares inside).
3. Drag and drop a frame onto your canvas. You can also click and hold on the frame icon, then select “create frame” from the menu that appears.
4. Resize and position your frame on the canvas. You can also add constraints to keep your frame aligned with other elements on the page.
5. Add elements to your frame, such as text, images, and buttons. You can also add interactions, like linkages between pages or modals.
6. Repeat steps 2-5 for each page of your website or app.
Using third-party tools:
1. There are many different wireframing tools available, such as Balsamiq, MockFlow, and WireframeSketcher. Choose a tool that you’re comfortable with and that has features that meet your needs. Create a new project in your chosen tool, or open an existing one. Follow the tool’s instructions to create your wireframes. This will vary depending on which tool you’re using.
Before you start, make sure that you have all the necessary tools and materials. You will need a screwdriver, electrical tape, and wire cutters. If you do not have these items, do not attempt to wire a Figma site.
In addition, be sure to read all the instructions carefully before beginning. Wiring a Figma site is not a difficult task, but it is important to follow the directions carefully to avoid any mistakes.
Finally, if you have any questions, be sure to ask a friend or family member for help. Wiring a Figma site can be dangerous if you do not know what you are doing. Do not take risks; ask for help if needed.
