Once Upon a Product: the Power of Storyboards
//About the event//
A lot has been said about storytelling as a design technique. Stories can inspire. They can help a team understand context and intent. They can help everyone think from the perspective of your customers and users.
But what does that mean? Sit around the campfire terrifying each other with graphic descriptions of table-based web layouts or steal the show with a gripping tale of survival trapped for weeks in a vestibule by Norman doors? Um, no. It’s a lot more practical than that.
Part talk, part hands-on workshop, we’ll explore storyboards as a storytelling device for design. You’ll learn how to devise a storyboard to inspire a team and get them aligned to a common vision. You’ll also learn how you can leverage storyboards as part of your standard approach to product design. All UX designers should have storyboarding as part of their toolkit. By the way, you don’t have to be an artist to make effective storyboards. If you can google images, and copy and paste, you can build storyboards!
