A Collection of Printable Web Browser Sketching and Wireframe Templates
All of the printable sketching templates that you will find below have all been designed specifically for web designers. Each of the sketching templates have an imprint of a web browser (they either use Safari, Chrome or Firefox) just waiting for you to wireframe or sketch your next design project. Each template is slightly different, most have various grid sizes, others are either blank or lined and some of them have allowed space to accommodate some note-taking. Below the free templates you will find a small selection of notepads and sketchpads (sorry, they are not free, pretty cheap though), again designed with the imprint of a web browser and all cool enough to merit a mention. Web Design Sketchbook The Web Design Sketchbook features a series of design and layout brainstorming pages with full browser chrome and grids to better plan how your site will look and operate when it is finished. You can view the printable templates below: Web Design Sketchbook Sketchbook Template

10 Excellent Tools for Creating Web Design Wireframes When starting a new web design project, it’s always a good idea to begin with a wireframe. The purpose of a wireframe is to communicate the layout of a page without getting caught up in color and design elements. Wireframes can be a big time saver as they help all parties involved come to an agreement on placement of major page elements such as headers, content areas, navigation menus, and footers. The key is to get the layout nailed down so major layout changes won’t take place once detailed design elements are in place. There are several different routes that a designer can take for creating wireframes, and there are even applications designed specifically for this.
