Invision Freehand — The Best Wireframing Tool

We all know how important wireframing is as you think about the layout and design of a product. Just in case you don’t know what it is or you are new to design — let me explain what wireframing is.

Wireframing is an awesome way to visualize an idea — It’s like the foundation of a house, you don’t know how the house would look but you have an idea what the bones would look like. Doing wireframes helps you and your stakeholders understand what the potential product/idea could look like. The aesthetics are never the focus while during wireframes. The focus is on the concept.

That’s why when thinking about design, it’s best to start with just a pen and a piece of paper. This has always been my wireframe go-to. But I have realized that sometimes it is hard for some people to understand my wireframes because I don’t have a good handwriting and can’t draw a straight line to save my life.

So, when I discovered Invision freehand, my design life was changed! Freehand gives users the flexibility to develop something quickly and share it with their stakeholders.

Here is an example of one of my wireframes in freehand

Benefits of using Freehand for your wireframe

It’s easy to use — It’s easy to pick up even if you haven’t designed before. If you’re a design newbie or an expert, you’ll find the value in it.

It allows for collaborative sketching — this is one feature I love to use a lot, especially in the wake of the current pandemic. It’s really useful when working with team members. This feature has made my workflow faster.

Cool sticky note feature — We designers love sticky notes. Invision just added this feature recently and what a great timing. This has allowed team members to contribute and provide feedback. Sometimes, we use this feature for brainstorming sessions.

If you want your wireframes to stand out and look crisp, try using Invision Freehand! I’m sure you’ll enjoy using it just as much as I am.
