We take a quick look at some wireframe resources and tools

Wireframes are the foundation of a design before it even starts to formulate with colors, shapes and forms. And even if some of us find them ugly, or a waste of time – yeah, I’ve heard that too – there is always the greater part among us that find them extraordinarily useful, amazingly beautiful, and somewhat sexy.

Here’s a short list of my favorite wireframing resources, which apart from keeping me informed about how others do it, I am also inspired and lead to new directions.

Wireframes Magazine

Just as you’d expect form a site with a name like that, they serve great wireframing content

I ♥ wireframes

This is more of a “Flickr pool meets twitter with a blog” kinda resource, but it still remains on my RSS Reader because it keeps serving top quality content.

Flickr is also a great source for inspiration

Images always talk better than words, so here’s what a really quick Flickr search comes up with. Great inspiration minus all the jabber …

Check these Flickr groups for instant inspiration:
