Day#11: wireframe.cc – another cool tool for wireframing

The first tool I learned to use for making a wireframe digitally is wireframe.cc. It’s free to start using with basic tools.I used it to make a wireframe for Scoop Marketplace website, Seattle’s zero-waste grocery store I worked with long ago. It was simple and useful. Here’s a glimpse of the wireframe.

Unlike Lucidchart with rich features, that I talked about here, wireframe.cc offers quite  limited tools for wireframing, which turns out to be a great point. Here’s what I mean:

  • It helps us focus on creating wireframing, which is the main focus, by having limited styling tools (limited fonts, limited color palettes.) That way, we save time from styling and polishing our work to concentrate on the main purpose of the task. It has a very clean, minimal interface, which is pleasant to work with. It hides tools when we don’t need them. Once we select any element, then the toolbar pops up. To create any element, we can just drag the mouse on the canvas and the tools will show up. All screen sizes are also available to choose.We don’t need to sign up for an account. We can start making a wireframe right away. This is cool. It really serves the goal of getting the work started and finished without dealing with signing up or verifying processes. 

Using a free version of wireframe.cc, we can share the wireframe to others by sending them the url on the browser bar of the wireframe, which automatically allows them to edit our work. It also lets us create only one page at a time (one page per one url). To get more features, we have to sign up for a premium account. 


This is day#11 post and a part of my commitment to spend 30 minutes a day for 30 days straight to write about software development tools that I love. My goal is to build my daily writing habit and connect to more people. This project is inspired by @dickiebush ’s “Ship 30 for 30” Atomic Essays.
