The 6-8-5 Method can be used in a number of ways to help with ideation and brainstorming, but also for fine tuning your designs and ideas. This session will focus on generating ideas in the form of rapid sketches around a set of requirements, then validating and fine-tuning them through structured pitching and critiquing. You don't need to be an artist or a designer, and you won’t need a laptop—just bring your favorite pencil and get ready to sketch!

  • love the thinking here... I've been doing more and more sketching lately and have found I've been able to crank out more ideas and have also gotten better feedback on the thinking that went into the design. When you wire or prototype you tend to try and make things perfect... at least I do and so people get hung up on aesthetics etc... and not the bigger picture
