Description:
Communicating Concepts with Comics

Often, wireframes, requirements, personas and other documents have
yielded unsatisfactory results – that is, when they are read at all.
At Yahoo!, Kevin Cheng has been experimenting with using comics as a
technique for communicating the core concepts behind a design’s
intended user experience.

In this presentation, Kevin will share how this technique has worked
well to get teams informed and on the same page, without fixating on
interface details too early in the project. He’ll demonstrate an in-
depth walkthrough of his process and the advantages he’s found using
comics over other methods. Best of all, you won’t even need to take
an art class to use this methodology.

We have other great events in the works, but we’re always on the look
out for great speakers with great presentations. If you’re interested
in speaking at a future event or have an idea for a future
presentation, please get in touch! (email: sf-local at ixda.org)
