Lightning Talk

Stimulating Visual Thinking

As User Experience Architects we have to come up with solutions that reflect brand, psychology and other various aspect often in short time frames. We need to be able to communicate these ideas visually to communicate them effectively to our clients. The talk is based on some ideation sessions that we've been running here at LBi recently to get the team engaged in new topics to create visual solutions.

Who is it for?
Anyone sketching or wireframing solutions who is interested to see another approach for generating ideas. It's intended to be particularly of use to junior/mid-weight user experience designers who would like to explore other ways of approaching visual thinking. It's a quite a practical talk with a little exercise to show how it can be applied.

What will people get out of it?
A practical approach how to use the cards, access to the cards set online and template to create their own.

What will be covered?
