About This Workshop

Being responsible for imagining, designing, or communicating digital product ideas and user experiences is no easy feat. Learning how to turn complex concepts into simple visual forms can help you evaluate ideas, products, and features quickly and effectively, before you jump into expensive pixels and code.

This workshop will cover how to weed out bad ideas before they progress while pursuing ones that are stickier, more engaging, and ultimately more impactful.

We’ll cover:

  • sketching figures and faces to illustrate user journeys
  • sketching basic objects and icons using layered sketching techniques
  • expanding your visual vocabulary and harnessing visual metaphor
  • sketching conceptual models, storyboards, and other time-based illustrations
  • putting it all together to sketch the user journey
  • Takeaways

    • Become more adept at communicating visually.
    • Simplify complex concepts and interactions for maximum impact and effectiveness.
    • Facilitate more effective collaboration, ideation, and communication amongst teams, stakeholders, and clients.

    Prereqs & Preparation

    None.

    This class is ideal for those who want to get a hands-on introduction to sketching methodology to help facilitate ideation and brainstorming and speed up your design process.

    Ben Crothers has been involved in design since before Netscape ruled the www, and in digital strategy for about the last 10 years. Ben is currently a Director of innovation projects at Second Road, a strategic innovation consultancy.

    Previous to Second Road, Ben was a design manager at Atlassian, where he built a research and design strategy team, guided product strategy, and installed several patterns and processes to help grow the design thinker in everyone throughout the organisation. He even resorted to dressing up like a doctor to spread the word outside of Atlassian about the Atlassian Team Health Monitor, which is live to the world for everyone to use.

    Ben leads innovation workshops, teaches sketching and visual communication, and helps teams prototype and test new concepts in all sorts of ways.

    He enjoys extreme sports like acrylic painting and brewing beer.
