Sketching & Wireframing
Is your concept actionable? What’s your minimum loveable product? Is your idea scalable? Will this new interaction make a user’s life easier? All of these kinds of questions have the opportunity to be addressed through low fidelity prototypes! In this workshop, we will transform user journeys and pain points into prototypes that we prepare for testing and feedback.
This fast-paced workshop is an action-oriented design thinking exercise connected to a community based opportunity to transform learnings into local impact. In collaboration with Global Kids, the design team at Bocoup cultivates a group of experts with varied skillsets to work together on a real-world issue, from collaborative ideation to creation. We will be framing the workshop around the question “How might we provide youth with an intuitive tool that empowers them to own and use their skills data?”
Through partnering with Global Kids, the participants’ prototypes have the potential to live on and be incorporated into the non-profit’s ongoing programming.
We designed this workshop to offer you a glimpse into the open design process. Participants will share progress throughout the workshop and develop a prototype for the final deliverable. This class is part 2 of a three-part series (but each workshop may be taken individually), so participants will be developing different stages of the project in each module.
This workshop is for you if you are a thinker, a dreamer, a doer, a New Yorker, a designer, a developer, a project manager—anyone who wants to learn about the user experience design process by doing rather than listening. No prior design experience is required.
