HELLO!UX Design + Content Strategy + Comics + Manga Nerd = Deb Aoki

I LOVE COMICS. I READ COMICS. I DRAW COMICS.

MEANWHILE, MOST OF MY JOBS WERE ABOUT WRITING FOR THE WEB

AND I STARTED USING MY DRAWING SKILLS MORE AND MORE…

I still write, but now I mostly draw.…which is pretty awesome

WHY DRAW PICTURES?

• Focuses on users’ needs and problems, rather than on design, business, or technology concerns or limitations

• Pictures can communicate abstract ideas and user experiences quickly and powerfully

• Faster and cheaper than coding clickable prototypes or designing wireframes, or polished page mock-ups

• Can provide a ‘big picture’ perspective of the entire user experience, goals & messaging

• It’s fun! And it encourages participation and informal discussions
