A website mockup is a visual representation of what a website will look like when it is complete. When you are trying to determine whether or not a design is “good”, it is helpful to look at the website design mockup. This allows you to get an idea of how the finished product will look, and make necessary changes to the design before sending it to production. In addition, it can be used as a way to quickly generate feedback from your target audience before spending time and money actually creating the site.

A website mockup is a static or interactive representation in the form of sketches, diagrams, or fully functional prototypes. Each website design agency has its own way of representing an idea, a possible outcome of the future website design, so before hiring one, ask if they will be able to provide you with a website mockup.

Why Do You Need A Website Mockup?

One of the most important aspects of designing a website is ensuring that the user experience is perfect. The best way to achieve this is by creating a website mockup. It will allow you to see how the website will look and feel before you actually build it. This means that you can make changes and tweaks to the design until you’re happy with it.

Creating a website design mockup comes with many benefits:

  • You get an idea of what your website will look like, therefore, you are making sure that you are getting exactly what you wanted.
  • It is a great way to test out different design ideas. You can try out different fonts, colours, and layouts to see what works best for your business. You can also experiment with different user flows to see how people move through the website.
  • A hired website design agency will have a full understanding of your vision when you confirm a final mockup
  • Production of the website will run much faster and smoother since you have a design at glance.
  • A good mockup saves time and money since you will be able to make changes at the early stage of the project
  • A very good website mockup will give you an idea of possible website/business expansion in the future

So if you have never had a website before, getting a website mockup is an absolute must.

What Website Mockup Consists Of?

Website mockup focuses on the structure and layout of the site. After reviewing a mockup you should be able to understand the general feel and flow of the website, as well as its navigation, main services and how it all ties together.

The following is a list of items that should be included in your website mockup:

  • Header area with logo, tagline, and navigation
  • Main content area
  • Sidebar(s)
  • Footer area
  • Graphics and images
  • Colors and fonts
  • Buttons and other interactive elements

When creating your mockup, you should also include some details about the website’s planned function. This typically includes things like what type of content will be included on it and how many pages will be there. Knowing these details is crucial because they help determine how much space is needed for each section of the design, which you can’t do without knowing what content needs to be displayed there.

It’s also important to consider how your website will look on different devices. With the rise of smartphones and tablets, it’s crucial that your website is designed to look good on all types of devices.
