A Sketch is Worth a Thousand Words
sketching as a communication and collaboration tool
aaron irizarry
product designer Nasdaq OMX
@aaroni
Communication is one of the largest
hurdles we face in the product
design process.
Sketching can help us
communicate and collaborate
better, by filling in gaps created
by varied understandings and
experiences.
Sketching is a visual aide that will
help communicate product
concepts, flows, and designs.
Sketching can be used to quickly
communicate concepts and direction to
stakeholders helping get them on board
earlier in the design process.
When there seems to be a roadblock in
communication during a meeting you can
use sketching as tool to open up
communication by visualizing ideas and
concepts out in the open.
“Words are powerful, but sometimes they
don't cut it. We can try to describe what we
are imagining, but a diagram often gets us
to a common ground quicker.” ~ Jared
Spool
Sketching is for everyone
You really only need to be able to draw a
square, a circle, a triangle, and a wavy line
to sketch design concepts and flows.
Sketching allows us to quickly communicate
ideas to other teams members during
collaborative exercises.
Sketching also allows for rapid exploration
and idea generation.
Things to keep in mind.
You don’t have to be an artist to sketch.
Sketching is a quick way to vet your own ideas.
Anytime is a good time to sketch.
Sketch in whatever way works best for you.
Tools
Sketchpads.
White Boards.
Copic Markers (or any pen).
Drafting dots or Painters Tape.
iPevo web cam for sharing remotely.
iPevo Remote Sharing
Real time preview of sketches
iPevo Camera pointed at
sketches and tattoos.
As with all things the key is finding what works
best for you in the context of your organization
and with your clients.
Don’t be intimidated by self imposed limitations
or concern over buy in, start small, every bit helps
contribute to positive progress.

Sketching As a Communication and Collaboration Tool.

  • 1. A Sketch is Worth a Thousand Words sketching as a communication and collaboration tool aaron irizarry product designer Nasdaq OMX @aaroni
  • 2. Communication is one of the largest hurdles we face in the product design process.
  • 3. Sketching can help us communicate and collaborate better, by filling in gaps created by varied understandings and experiences.
  • 4. Sketching is a visual aide that will help communicate product concepts, flows, and designs.
  • 5. Sketching can be used to quickly communicate concepts and direction to stakeholders helping get them on board earlier in the design process.
  • 6. When there seems to be a roadblock in communication during a meeting you can use sketching as tool to open up communication by visualizing ideas and concepts out in the open.
  • 7. “Words are powerful, but sometimes they don't cut it. We can try to describe what we are imagining, but a diagram often gets us to a common ground quicker.” ~ Jared Spool
  • 8. Sketching is for everyone You really only need to be able to draw a square, a circle, a triangle, and a wavy line to sketch design concepts and flows.
  • 9. Sketching allows us to quickly communicate ideas to other teams members during collaborative exercises. Sketching also allows for rapid exploration and idea generation.
  • 10. Things to keep in mind. You don’t have to be an artist to sketch. Sketching is a quick way to vet your own ideas. Anytime is a good time to sketch. Sketch in whatever way works best for you.
  • 11. Tools Sketchpads. White Boards. Copic Markers (or any pen). Drafting dots or Painters Tape. iPevo web cam for sharing remotely.
  • 12. iPevo Remote Sharing Real time preview of sketches iPevo Camera pointed at sketches and tattoos.
  • 13. As with all things the key is finding what works best for you in the context of your organization and with your clients. Don’t be intimidated by self imposed limitations or concern over buy in, start small, every bit helps contribute to positive progress.
