Workshop: Basic Deliverables: Wireframes and Flows
Workshop Fee: $250.00 USD
Wireframes wacky? Flows farkakt?
These and other interaction design documents can be difficult to create and use in the best of circumstances, not to mention the tight time frames and politicized organizations in which we work. Web sites and interactive products are becoming more complex and so, too, must the design documentation that describes them.
If you've spent any time pondering the ins and outs of any of these documents (or feel like you need to), this workshop is for you. Spend four hours with Dan Brown, author of Communicating Design--the only book on user experience design documentation--as he leads you through an exploration of wireframes and flows.
During the course of the workshop, you'll hone your skills with these two key documents, essential tools for communicating interaction design concepts. By the end of the workshop, you will have worked through these two deliverables and gathered best practices that you can extend to all your documentation.
Participating in this hands-on workshop, you will:
* Discuss success criteria for wireframes and flows
* Explore how different circumstances affect the content and format
* Define a process for creating documents, large and small
* Critique examples from Dan's portfolio and other sources
* Create different versions of these documents
* Practice presenting your documents
Dan Brown founded EightShapes, LLC--a Washington, DC-based user experience consultancy--with Nathan Curtis. In 2006, he wrote Communicating Design, a book describing 10 core deliverables for user experience designers. He's been practicing web design since 1994.
