Wireframe Low Fidelity $ Documentation, quick communication Sketch, black, white & grey representation of the interface Sketch, black, white & grey representation of the interface
Prototype Middle to High Fidelity $$$ User testing, reusable backbone of the interface Interactive
Mockup Middle to High Fidelity $$ Gathering feedback and getting buy-in from stakeholders Static visualization


vector drawing software like inkscape, or the editing software Gimp, (in the Google suite) or or MockFlow
