You know your idea is great, but nobody else does. Perhaps tha is because you are terrible at describing it?
Visual communication (aka. sketching) is the quickest way to break a complex idea into simple parts and effectively convey them.
Visual literacy is no longer just for designers. It's an absolute must-have for each every person who makes their living from innovation. Products, business models, and design all go hand-in-hand, and we hope this workshop will add something valuable to your toolkit regardless of which camp you current reside in.
We're going to run your creativity through the ringer:
- Building quick, useful mockups the good old fashioned way (with a pen!)
- Learning which parts of a design matter
- Inventing a business model based on a customer need
- Deeply intertwining your product, business model, and roadmap
- Managing your development with paper prototypes
This workshop involves both group and individual activities. It makes use of the Business Model Canvas as well as learning tools developed by the UX community. It's modelled after the training career architects and designers benefit from and should be a load of fun.
As a bonus, since the world is a kind and loving place, the price is free.
I hope you'll join us!
