So you’re saying that is better to make a quality layout when you’re dealing with an client
Sort of. Sometimes clients want specific things even if it’s bad for UI or UX. Therefore, creating a mockup of specific UI or UX methods along with proof of concept and an explanation (that they would understand) can be important for them to be successful. I’m not talking about mocking up a whole layout along with the footer area, etc.
I think that’s why people have a hard time with the word ‘mockup’. Designers have been doing it wrong.
