The Pen Is Mightier Than The Keyboard

A session at Scotch on the Rocks 2011

Thursday 3rd March, 2011

4:00pm to 5:00pm (GMT)

In almost all industries that create things, from architecture to automotive design the idea of embarking on a project without first visually conceptualizing the end product is unheard of. Yet in our industry this is not something we commonly practice.

Simple hand drawn wireframes and storyboards through to full working prototypes are not mere whims of a user experience designer, they are communication tools which can be exploited by people involved at any level of a project.

Clear objectives, faster development, less wasted time, better software and happier users are all by-products of good communication.

In his session Robert will demonstrate the power of visual communication by showing you his process for assembling a graphical representation of an application in collaboration with team members and users, progressing from pencil sketches and storyboards to the first working versions of the application.
