Today we will continue designing for the characters of The Hours and run a design sprint featuring 8 Box, storyboarding, and feedback.
What does a design sprint look like? I didn't invent it. It's a fantastic technique used by designers of all sorts. We're adopting our own version but you can see more of it in the book Sprint by Jake Knapp and the Google Ventures crew.
We ran an 8 Box on Monday. We're going to do another. (The more you 8 Box, the better you get at it.) Then we'll storyboard (3 post its that show your idea in action). We may or may not have time for feedback on our storyboards. We may do the feedback on 8 Boxes.
From here, you'll actually build your prototype solutions to the challenges and needs facing one of the characters from The Hours.
You'll have about 20 minutes to build.
SKETCHNOTING & POWER QUOTING: DALLOWAY 3-29.
We use the last third of class to explore sketchnotes and visualizing as a means of notetaking and annotating a text. We'll look at Clarissa, Rezia and Septimus, as well as discuss the value of meeting other Londoners in Woolf's narrative.
OUT OF CLASS WORK.

How might you organize these sketchnotes? How might you make visual meaning of this first quarter of the book? All one? A series? Organized by character? Setting? Idea?
