Wireframe Showcase - Home

In design, wireframes are useful because they help put the focus on important structuring issues before considering detail-oriented challenges. Wireframe Showcase is a site based on wireframes showing how designers transformed mock-ups into working designs. There is a short explanation of each piece and a chance to provide feedback or ask the designer questions through a comment form. Most of the websites grew out of digital mock-ups, which have the advantage of being easy to tweak and rearrange. The result is a pleasing and informative collection of wireframes.

Whether you need an ordered or unordered list, a simple paragraph or a headline, just grab it from Kureno's Lorem Ipsum Tool.

Check one or several of the control boxes and click “Generate.” You can even choose between three different content types from a drop-down list: “Design Studio,” “Business” and “Technology.”
