a two way street

Wirify helps interaction designers to make the return trip from rendered form to wireframe – of the design pattern. 

Interaction designers spend a fair bit of time creating and revising wireframes in the early phases of our online projects. Whatever your take on wireframes is, they are a mainstay in the user experience professional’s toolkit. Although typical wireframes are essentially dead documents, they’re extremely helpful as thinking and communication tools during a project. We even have several great websites dedicated to sharing your wireframes and wireframing techniques with other designers.

Still, wireframes are essentially a one-way street, a journey from the website concept and high-level information architecture to visual comps and ultimately real HTML, CSS and interactive behaviour. Once the site is live, you never go back to the wireframes. Until now.
