How to make quick, useful UI sketches

Click here for an updated version of this class.

As I’ve embraced Agile and Lean Startup methods, I’ve learned to adapt my UX practice so it is more QUICK, VISUAL, COLLABORATIVE and CONTINUOUS. Learning how to quickly sketch screen layouts and user interface (UI) elements helps me think through design problems, communicate ideas to other people, collaborate, and reduce the need for pixel-perfect deliverables.

In this workshop, I’ll lead you through a series of exercises which help you learn to draw good-looking, quick, useful, user interface sketches, followed by a discussion about how and when we can use sketching in our own projects.

No prior sketching or UX experience required, everyone can draw. Just grab some paper, a pencil and an eraser and follow along. This brief tutorial should take you about 1 hour.
