Annotations are often in the form of notes or comments that are included in design deliverables. Annotations within a design deliverable look like this:

A sketch of a product information page with the main image, image navigation arrows, and product variant options annotated.

Annotations provide additional context and further explanation of what is included in the design and why design decisions were carried out. When presenting low-fidelity deliverables to stakeholders, annotations offer a further explanation when it may be hard to interpret designs without the visual assistance of high-fidelity design elements.
