UIE Virtual Seminar Presentation (How does this work?)
Principal, EightShapesLength: 90 minutes
"Show, don't tell" is a phrase often heard these days. With collaborative sketching techniques to orient and unify teams, it's no surprise that you are embracing sketches to explore design ideas earlier in a creative process.
But what are your goals for sketching, and how do they translate to your organization or team? And what are some great techniques you can start using right now?
Find out from Nathan Curtis of EightShapes. He'll lead you through the processes, people, and purposes behind different types of sketches. Whether you're trying to sell your ideas, crystallize disparate discussions, or engage remote teams in UX decision-making, you'll be glad you've got Nathan—and loads of new sketching exercises—on your side.
You'll see where sketching fits—and explore the tools of the trade.
You'll dig into Design Studios and critique.
You'll use IPEVO beyond in-studio settings to include peers
and clients from afar.
So if you're just learning about sketches or looking to capitalize on more of their productive power, this seminar should be on your calendar.
Nathan Curtis has been swimming in the deep end of the UX pool since 1996, when he started focusing his creative energies on IA, ID, usability, and front-end development. He's also an entrepreneur at heart, having founded the renowned EightShapes in Washington, DC, where he continues to make a splash today.
Nathan, who authored Modular Web Design, also led other UIE seminars we suggest watching, including How to Create a UX Design Library from September 2010 and Components vs. Patterns from January 2009. He also held a virtual seminar in 2011 on this topic of HTML prototypes if you need a primer. Find him on Twitter @nathanacurtis
Our team has attended almost all of your seminars. Often the topic of the seminar relates to a current design challenge for us.
