As a UX designer, it's important to be able to communicate your ideas visually. Developing this skill takes time, effort, and an acute awareness of interactions among people, objects, and the environment.
I like to learn fast and slow, immersing myself in an experience for an intense period of time then stepping back and to reflect on my what I learned. Last week I challenged myself to take a deep-dive into visual communication -- 100 sketches in 2 days. I was curious to see what patterns might emerge and how I might have developed as a visual communicator.
Using 3x5 inch cards, Sharpies, and a grey marker, I sketched what was around me. My walk home from work, people on the street, and ordinary objects. I captured people, things, contexts, spaces, and flows.
Below are 10 of my 100 sketches.
