What is a Mockup?

A mockup suggests what the final design would look like and is normally shared between a wireframe and a prototype prototype with clients. Usually, it will indicate colour schemes, typography and final layout of navigation.

Design, Defined

Mockups are simply wireframes with an additional surface layer that conveys the visual design. These include content, structure, user interface, and the aesthetics.

Key point:Mockups are a vital part of the design process, like any other deliverable concept, and are important for engaging with clients who produce feedback.
