When you start working on a new project, it might be tempting to dive right into picking fonts and colors; however, it’s better to resist this temptation. Instead, before your ideas are fully formed, invest more time in finding the proper direction of your design. This is a perfect moment to begin wireframing

Why wireframing? Because it helps designers focus on creating a solid user experience rather than polishing visual design details. Effective wireframe tools and templates act as a starting point for a creative journey and can speed up the design process by allowing you to experiment freely—try various approaches, rearrange elements, change the size of individual objects, replace the placeholder text with real content—and uncover key requirements without dedicating a lot of time and effort to the process.

After getting familiar with wireframing fundamentals, you still might wonder where to start. In many cases, it’s easier to begin when you have visual references—in this case, you should begin with a wireframe template. Below are a few wireframing examples from Behance, Dribbble, and other popular resources that are good for both beginners and UX designers searching for something new.
