Why You Shouldn't Design Wireframes in Sketch

Focus on your ideas, not on pixels.

Let’s say you start wireframing and need to add a button…

How tall should it be? How wide?

What color?

Dropshadow or no?

Squared corners? Rounded corners? Pill shape?

How much padding should I include on the sides?

Wait, is the text totally centered?

Should I pick a different font?

Maybe I should use medium weight?

This button needs an icon…

Create my own? Hmm, hearts are actually harder than they look.

Look for a library? What was the name of that cool one?

What does the Material icon set do? Noun Project?
