Intro to Visual Thinking
Wednesday, August 29th from 7:00 - 8:30 pm
Craighton Berman, Designer-Entrepreneur
Shaping ideas and communicating concepts is an essential part of creating new products and services. But ideas are notoriously intangible; which makes them hard to communicate to others clearly and even harder to shape collaboratively. But this gap between ideas & collaboration can be bridged with visual thinking—essentially the art of representing ideas with images. This session will be a mini viz-think workshop, where we'll get a better understanding of what visual thinking is, how to use it, and explore a few techniques that participants can start using immediately.
After completing this class, participants will have a basic understanding of the types of drawing used in visual thinking, a hands-on introduction to taking sketchnotes, and an introduction to storyboarding experiences.
Participants at all levels are welcome. No drawing skill is necessary, but being that this is a workshop, a willingness to draw and share with others is important.
Required class materials / software:
Sketchbook and a pen. (Post-Its and a sharpie)
