  • Moqups: HTML5-Based Mockups On Steroids

    Before you detail the design of your next website project you need to determine where should be what. You will have to place your navigation, images, texts, forms, whatever will be part of your site. Especially essential parts such as the navigational concept have to be planned very thoroughly.

Mockups are small models, sometimes even prototypes, sometimes only scribbles of the website under construction. They do not determine the design aka looks of a site but they define its structure and the navigational concepts. The brand-new web-app Moqups has been created to help you do just that, build early mockups of your next big web-thing.
