Last year, I participated in a group project that involved designing an interactive system for a sports centre. In between sketching and prototyping, we had to make wire-frames*. Before then, I knew nothing about it. I have to say that ignorance really could be bliss. Sketching for me was already sad but wire-frames took it to the next level.
What I learnt from that? Group work is awesome when you have people with different strengths.

Have you had any encounters with wire-frames? Has there been anything that you didn’t like on the first try?
