Quick Sketching for Interaction Design

Day 3 9:00am12:30am

This workshop will provide clear and simple methodologies to empower interaction between designers and to help you learn how hand sketching techniques—with pens and pencils—can be a means of recording, sharing and presenting ideas to others. It will also serve as a primer on sketching to help you to become a more confident and better visual communicator, while also demonstrating quick methods for using drawing to enrich the collaborative design process.

Intended for interaction and user experience designers of all skill levels, this workshop will help you broaden your sketching skills to capture rapid visualisation of thoughts, concepts, systems and scenarios. Mark will guide you through a range of activities, introducing drawing and sketching techniques along with methods for including sketching as part of a generative design process.

The format for this fast-paced workshop will be a balanced combination of presentation and discussion, along with ample time for hands-on sketching and drawing. By the end of the workshop you will have a broader understanding of hand-generated sketching and will have also learned new methods to help you work more creatively. Expect to be engaged and challenged in an open, supportive and fun studio environment.

In this workshop you will:.

  • Be introduced to design sketching.
  • Explore what design sketching is and how it is different from fine art drawing.
  • Learn quick and dirty techniques for representing people, things, places and ideas.
  • Familiarise yourself with scenario sketching.
  • Take part in a group drawing project.
