Why wireframes are becoming obsolete

Hi

First of all, a lot of new subscribers here today as many of you have found me through my, now free, books. Welcome! I'd love to hear what you'd want me to write about.

These last weeks have been kinda stressful with a ton of work happening (and unfortunately as for most, some work that just isn't happening). I had this post planned for weeks and at first, when I sat down to write, it felt so superficial. Talk about wireframes during a global pandemic? I realize that you might be going through a super stressful time so let me just say that I feel for you. I ended up wanting to write this post to allow some of you a well-deserved break from all of the stress that's occupying the news today.

So, do you ever wonder about wireframes and how they seem to be becoming more and more useless as time goes on? I mean, more people are just skipping the step entirely and focusing on high fidelity designs from the start. Are we missing out on something? My answer is.... no. I have some pretty good reasons too. Take a look at this week's post and let me know what you think!
