Framing the Story: Using Comics for Better UX

Storytelling is a crucial UX skill. Who are the users? What problems are they trying to solve? Why do they need your website or software? Where will they use it? When? Comic strips and storyboards are a great way to communicate about people, their relationships, and context over time. When used at the right moment during a project, comics bring ideas to life, illustrate complex scenarios and simplify requirements. In this fun and engaging roundtable discussion, RUXsters will glimpse rare comics selected by Cindy Jackson, Archival Assistant for Comic Arts @ VCU Special Collections, share favorite comics and graphic novels, and discuss ways to use comics for better UX. Seats are limited to 25 (free admission), so sign up early for an evening of BZZZT!, ZAP!, POW!

    Anybody ever read Persepolis? - It tells the story of the Islamic revolution though the eyes of a developing young adult. Minimalistic drawings and very character driven. Later it was made into a movie.
