Over the years, I’ve heard the terms “sketches”, “mockups”, and even “prototypes” used synonymously with “wireframes.” Initially, wireframing tools were paper-only with what many now consider basic (not comprehensive) layouts. And the initial versions of digital wireframing and prototyping tools were either incredibly austere and covered the wireframing niche of product design (i.e. Balsamiq circa 2008), or exceptionally complex and bridged the product design stages, namely wireframing and prototyping (i.e. Axure circa 2003). While digital tools proliferate, the old pa- radigms of paper wireframing and prototyping remain, leading designers, product managers, and engineers alike to further con ate the terms used daily.
