Illustrating Your Point

Illustrating Your Point

This was for a 5-minute lightning talk I gave at a TriUXPA/exploreUX event. The theme of the event was UX process and each speaker talked about a specific aspect of their UX process. It was was a great night! This talk stems from all the sketching I like to do and how I use it as a tool throughout the design process.
