A fast storyboarding technique to replace those stick figures!
Story boarding can be useful in UX to:
- Clarify a journey map
- Better define a use case
- Reveal details previously missed when writing a user test
- Add more professional value to sign-offs
Do you have a collection of scribbles on post-it notes or a few thumbnails here and there throughout a notebook? Maybe a few snaps on your phone from a whiteboard session? Storyboarding is a great way to bring them all together in a cohesive flow to help define a user story.
Even if you don’t actually “draw,” there is an easy process to follow to bring more clarity and purpose to your work.
Visuals help everyone and when you start building a scene visually, you often see and think of aspects that brainstorming sessions might have missed.
Storyboards can be used to sell upper-management on expanding budgets to create better tests and experiences for user testing. How many times has a slide show and talking head lost interest of the crowd? Visually appealing graphics will help keep the interest of your audience and engage them more than a chart of numbers.
The images shown were all created with the technique in the guide. I developed this process for myself to generate over 96 boards!
The guide contains a step by step process to follow and is illustrated along the way with an example from a scribble to a finished panel (individual scene) along with three different coloring techniques to bring varity to your story boards.
