Sketching & how to win at Pictionary

Download to read offline

Talk given at DDD Perth 2018

Have you ever told yourself or others that you can’t draw? If you’ve ever played a game of Pictionary then you’ll know that getting your point across isn’t necessarily about how beautiful your drawing is. Sketching isn’t just for artists and designers - it’s a powerful tool for communicating ideas, and you don’t have to be Da Vinci to do it.



Maybe you’ve struggled to get a concept across in a meeting, but hesitated to grab a marker and start scribbling on the whiteboard. Maybe you’ve struggled getting ideas out of your own head and onto paper, and dot points aren’t cutting it. Maybe you’re just not very good at Pictionary and want to beat your cousins at the next family party.



You’ll learn why sketching is such an effective method of communication, and how to put together your own visual vocabulary to bust out next time when words alone are not enough. More importantly, we’ll go over why anyone can develop the skills and confidence to use sketching in their work. No fancy tools or artistic talent required.
