The Workshop

How can we create a better collaborative between a team of designers and non-designers? One of the best ways to share our ideas across the team is through a group activity called Sketchstorming. Not only does sketchstorming allow us to build a better understanding of the problems, but it also helps the team to quickly uncover potential solutions before deep diving into details. In other words, it keeps everyone on the same page right from the start!

We hope this fun, interactive session gives you new perspectives and tools that you can apply to your projects.

This workshop will cover:
– Intro and frameworks of Sketchstorming
– The do’s and don’ts
– Warm-up
– Sketching techniques and tips
– Group exercises (With given design challenges)
