A wireframe is a simplified representation of your website or application. It consists of lines and text that can be hand-drawn or electronic. The focus of the wireframe should be structural elements that represent priority. In this stage, visual design and color are not presented. Like the picture shown below.
A brand is not a logo.
A brand is not an identity.
And, certainly not a product.
Marty Neumeier has defined it by saying, “A brand is a person’s gut feeling about a product, service, or organization. It’s a gut feeling because people are emotional, intuitive beings.”
We tend to base our buying choices on trust. And trust comes from the products that exceed our expectations. So, in other words, a brand is the understanding of something that pops into people’s minds through their gut feeling.
Let’s say you’re a company trying to build your own brand. At this point…
HTML stands for Hypertext Markup Language, the language for describing the structure of web pages.
The design of HTML consists of two parts: the head and the body.
CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets, the language for describing the presentation of web pages.

If you’re going to use color effectively in your designs, you’ll need to know how to describe it precisely.
But sometimes, the words describing the color qualities can be pretty confusing. So I made this list of essential terms that UX/UI designers use frequently.
You don’t necessarily have to remember all of these technical terms. Just getting familiar with these different concepts is all you need.
Some flowers use colors to attract specific insects for pollination. Some insects use color to warn a potential predator of defensive toxins.
And some animals, such as cuttlefish, can even change their color to match their surroundings.
Within human nature, we emotionally respond differently to different colors.
It greatly influences how we organize, identify, and interpret information to understand the environment. In fact, 85% of people reported that color has a significant influence on what they buy.
According to the Association for Interaction Design (IxDA):
“Interaction design defines the structure and behavior of interactive systems.
Interaction designers strive to create meaningful relationships between people and the products and services that they use, from computers to mobile devices to applications and beyond.”
But after some research, I was pretty surprised to find out that there are a substantial number of websites that have amazing photos you can use free for personal and commercial use.
So here I made a list of these sites.
