Sketching by hand gives you superpowers

Everything begins on a whiteboard or a napkin. All kind of creations, but especially a digital project is really kicked of when someone grabs a pen and starts sketching. One sketch leads to another and when the ideas starts flowing on whitepboards or on paper everyone in the project can see the vision and provide their unique perspective, regardless of if their perspective is business, design or technology. In this course we will focus on digital projects from conceptual perspective and how you can use hand drawn sketches to boost innovation. After the course you will know how to use hand drawn sketches to think ahead and capture the best ideas. You will be able to be a creator of more successful and innovative digital projects.

The whiteport interactive sketching method takes a very practical approach to capturing your visions and ideas in sketches. We start with our effective techniques for organizeing your thoughts before putting them on paper. When we start sketching we rapidly takes you throug the foundation of in drawing straight lines and build basic shapes. Then, we add artful touches to give your sketches personality and focus attention on the most imortant part of what you want to convey. Finally you will learn how to break business processes into steps and make full blown paper prototypes fully comparable with any digital wireframeing tool. All effectively by hand! Further more, there is an array of possibilites available when drawing by hand that no digital tool can offer and you will in this course get the inside scoope and learn all the tricks in the book. We will teach you how to design sites and systems faster than people can talk using very rough sketches and miniatures. We will give you the ability to zoom your focus in on crucial parts of what you are working with the proactive use of scale and level of detail. No sketching course is compleate if you dont manage to master the power of story boarding to visualize animations, complex interaction and variables of outcomes based on the users actions. All of these techniques is great both for your own work with innovative solutions as well as turning long and booring meetings into stunning workshops and highly effectvie sessions with your teams and clients. Everyone has a whiteboard story. You know, the situation where you disagreed with someone and suddenly you both stepped in front of the whiteboard. Then, instantaneously after starting to sketch, you find yourself in an interesting dialog with active listening and agreement follows as a matter of cause. No matter if you are redecorating your kitchen, planning a wedding, building a mobile app or sending people to the moon. The super power of sketching together is widely usable and available for you. If you are happy with your current workflow using a digital wireframing tool or use a design apllicaiton creating highly detailed sketches by hand might not be something for you. However, it is proven that making rough sketches to communicate with others and organize your mind before going into the computer will significantly speed up your work flow and render a better result. Skething is here to stay. No matter what technologies we might invent in the future, innovators with sketching skills will inherit the planet! The task of saving the world starts right here, on a piece of paper!

How does the course work?

The coruse requires no prior sketching skills. The whiteport method will get you sketching in matter of minutes. You will impress yourself when you see what you are able to draw allready in the first session. You will learn how to conduct workshops and solve problems visually. We start with the foundation, to draw lines, boxes and circlies. Then we make these shapes useful by learning hot do make mindmaps, timelines and multiple kinds of diagrams. Drawing screens and interacive elements like forms and buttons, add text markers and sketch for any device. The advanced part of the course is used for sketching scenarios, story boards and finally we teach you how to turn your simple sketches into a powerful requirement documentsation. We will cover sketching on whiteboards together with others, use pen and paper. Also, since the nnumber of devices supporting pen technology on every conceivable platform is rapidly increasing but few people outside the artistic community have fully discovered the power of interactive sketching. We in Whiteport have, of course, updated our sketching technique to affect not only a pen, paper and whiteboards but to utilize the full collaborative potential in free and standard software to be able to sketch beyond any boundaries
