What is a Mockup?
A mockup is a static design used to showcase how a website or an application might look. People use mockups to help evaluate potential designs without coding the actual application or site.
More About Mockups
Mockups are essential aspects of web design and development projects. With a mockup, you can discuss design choices and how to implement them from a development standpoint. You can do this without committing a larger number of resources until you’re sure the project is headed in the right direction.
If you’re working on a website with a team, designers can create an initial mockup using tools such as Sketch, Photoshop, Invision, or InDesign. The team then discusses the mockups and suggests potential changes. When everyone agrees on the mockup design and its elements, the developers can work on making it come to life.
