Product design requires fast and light weight strategies, in order to make
decisions, changes and true innovation. Building prototypes in same medium
as the final product is something other industries have done for years. If
you want to learn how to push your design process with real collaboration,
and live solutions at every phase, then Sketchflow in Expression 3 is THE
tool to explore. Discover how to take the ‘fuzziness’ and uncertainty out of
your stakeholder meetings, with lo-fi, working sketches and prototypes.
Showcase the inherent value of your solutions with rich, tangible,
interactive, illustrative, working narratives that clearly demonstrate
success. By adopting a dynamic process you can: create and test ideas
instantly, FEEL the user experience and share it with your team and clients,
all while keeping the solution light and non-destructive. It’s time to take
the frustration out of your work!

The event is free of charge and open to all interested parties.

Sara Summers is a User Experience Evangelist for Microsoft based out of
Austin, TX. Sara is currently coauthoring a book for experience designers,
entitled *Dynamic Prototyping*, expected to be on bookshelves by the end of

designers and developers working and playing together to create beautiful,
inspirational products.

Sara speaks often and loves to talk about big ideas, changing everything,
breaking your toys, throwing away your designs and capturing new ideas. She
reads everything she can get her hands on and prides herself in being an
armchair social and cognitive scientist and researcher. Academically, Ms.
Summers is trained as a technologist and visual designer, with a BS in
