Event Details

Storyboarding for Product Creation 

Wednesday, March 26th from 7:00pm-9:00pm

Alex Cowan, Design Strategist, at large

Whether you’re speaking to your board of directors, pitching a product design to a group of strangers, or discussing the next big thing with your development team, your presentation must be designed to persuade a specific audience. If you can't explain your product in a compelling and interesting way, your message may get lost in translation.

Stories have a unique power to appeal to our emotions and change our minds. Storyboards are a great way to master the art of storytelling. In this class, we'll equip you with the tools and techniques of storyboarding, so that you can create compelling presentations and create breakthrough product experiences.

This class is for product designers, developers, marketers, managers, and consultants who want to make better products and communicate more effectively.

TAKEAWAYS

  • Understand the tools and techniques of storyboarding, why it's useful, and how to get started
  • Learn how to use storyboards for customer discovery, customer acquisition, and product development
  • Create more vivid agile user stories
