This session was presented by Eva-Lotta Lamm at Smashing Conference NYC 2014 on 18 June 2014.
Sketching is a crucial tool for designers to have in their skill set. It’s cheap, fast and easy to learn. Many design and product teams today have embraced sketching as part of their (agile) process. From quick wireframes and flow diagrams to user scenarios and story boards, sketching can be used to quickly explore design possibilities, think through various options or to communicate a concept in a quick but engaging way.
This presentation teaches some basic sketching skills hands-on and shows how you can refine your sketches to make them communicate more effectively. It presents examples, tips and thoughts on process, practicing and how to move beyond boxes and arrows to extend your sketching skills into richer forms of visual expression like storyboarding and sketch-noting.
