Wireframes with Muse

So what are the advantages of using Muse to create our wireframes? Well, Muse not only lets you create wireframes, but it also allows you to quickly create prototypes using those wireframes. This means you can show clients the functionality of the website with the basic layout. The prototype produced by Muse can be reviewed on any web browser giving the client a good idea of how the site will appear. This kind of early testing can help alleviate time-consuming problems further down the line of the design process.

We're going to prepare a site and wireframe now for a fictitious website about windsurfing. First, we'll create a new site, and then add pages in the Plan view.
