I'm the guy that typically works between the Product Manager and the Business Analyst. It's my job to make sure the developers and engineers get the right designs before they code. If they fail, I fail.
Most often I report to the Director or Head of R&D, Engineering or Development. For the most part I'm in between make or break, with my ass on the line.
I wireframe and solve complex problems for the user, not the developer. I design and build prototypes before development. Photoshop, Illustrator, Axure, PowerPoint, Catalyst, are just a few of my tools. Windows, Apple, Blackberry and Android are typical conversations with a beer, followed by my plans to change the world.
I'm a UI/UX Designer, not a developer.
The wireframe connects the underlying conceptual structure, or information architecture, to the surface, or visual design of a website or application.
Wireframes help establish functionality, and the relationships between different screen templates. Iterative, wireframing is where thinking becomes tangible.

Fundamentals of Gestalt psychology and Visual Perception give cognitive perspective on how to create effective visuals.
