Scenario-Based Wireframe Sketching

In her user experience bible, Kim Goodwin describes a wire frame sketching method that involves 2 people.  One person talks through a carefully crafted real-life scenario while the other person sketches.  Giving consideration to real user behavior this early in the process seems like a huge time & headache saver.

Let's try it!  We'll sketch a few scenarios this way.  My drawing sucks, so I could really use some practice.  Or at least practice watching someone else in action.


p.s. If you'd like us to work on your project's wireframes for this meetup, please contact me: hello[at]

    Got me thinking more about the user than our software

    I really like how we started to work on the scenario we generated and turned them into sketches. But I wish we had spent more time sketching than drawing up a scenario.
