Idea Sketch Sheets If you are planning an idea-generating session with your team, give these idea sheets a try. Identify the needs or features you would like to explore Have each participant run some timed sprints, individually Then take time to share the results (Even the ones you don’t think are solid) And if your really brave, have clients or consumers go through the same exercise (empathic innovation, anyone?) via UX Array

Overhauling mobile.twitter.com from the ground up

After some on-paper iterations and reviews with the design and mobile-web teams, we quickly jumped into HTML/CSS wireframes that we could begin playing with on targeted devices.

Post-it Scenarios

Scenarios are a great way to demonstrate how a person (customer/user/specific persona) could work through a task in a specific context.I enjoy using post-its for scenarios of task-flows that haven’t quite been settled on. The post-its make it easy to add, remove and rearrange the plot points to form new stories. It’s also a great way to communicate how two or more scenarios differ. People can easily understand how the complexity of a scenario changes when you have to add five more post-its to the story to complete the same task.

Because these are rough sketches the people you’re working with will better understand that the solutions proposed by each scenario are pliable. This will result in better participation and feedback.The mantra on IxD Sketches is always that sketching is about approachable communication not creating art.
