Getting things right at the planning stage can save you problems, and money, later on. These are just a few simple tools for making sure you’re all on the same page:

Mockingbird is a basic browser-based wireframing tool that lets you mock up the layout of webpages and create the bare bones of a website. It’s a great way to produce a rough draft of how you see a website looking and can give our web designers a steer on what you’re after.
