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 Principal Designer at Atlassian, and spends a lot his time teaching design techniques, running strategic workshops, and helping teams be more creative and to focus on the right things. Previous to Atlassian, Ben was a design consultant at Second Road (a strategic innovation consultancy), and directed several projects to help companies and government departments be more creative in solving complex problems for their customers and communities.

    Above all, Ben wants everyone to be just as good at the whiteboard as they are at the keyboard, to be better at thinking, communicating, and solving problems visually. He's packed years of experience into practical tips and exercises in his book Presto Sketching: Simple Drawing for Brilliant Product Thinking and Design.

    He enjoys extreme sports like abstract painting and brewing beer.
