Wireframe and prototype resources are very helpful for designers when they need to create a mockup to show to their client in order to give them an idea of how their web or mobile design will look once it is designed completely. With the help of UI design kits, wireframe tools or prototype tools, designers can quickly create mockups of their designs and can communicate with their clients more effectively.

By creating wireframes and prototypes either for mobile or web design, designers can discuss in deeper detail with their clients about the different versions of their projects without investing hours.
