Why You Shouldn't Design Wireframes in Sketch(whimsical.co)

    Hey all, just wrote up a new blog post. It's a bit cheeky I suppose. But the core premise is that wireframes are meant to show the general layout, content, and functionality of an interface, not the style and aesthetics. It's so easy to get sucked into messing with trivial details (like what the buttons look like and whether the alignment is correct) when that time would be better spent on the bigger ideas.

      For me, what you're describing here is an issue with the designer, not the software capabilities. I can frame a website in no time in Sketch without ever getting to the style and aesthetics.

      Hell, I can even make a presentation of an idea, how it'll work and not even touch on the buttons.

      I didn't understand why I should not be using Sketch at all. Try positive title next time and, just a suggestion, talk why you're better, not why other software is bad...
