Teaching a half-day workshop on the Design Studio Methodology
This April, I’ll be teaching a half-day workshop at General Assembly on the Design Studio Methodology.
I first learned of this technique four years ago after reading a fantastic article by Will Evans introducing the topic. At the time, I was leading up the UX team at Carbonite and dealing with some big challenges. I was struggling to persuade a seasoned team of interaction designers to see the value in sketching. The team was accustomed to starting their design ideation process with high fidelity prototypes and they didn’t see a reason to change. I was also looking for opportunities to better involve stakeholders across the organization in the design process. It didn’t take me long to find that the design studio approach addressed both of these challenges and more.
If you would like to learn how to run a design studio with your team, join me at General Assembly Boston next month.
