ALA 322: Sketching: the Visual Thinking Power Tool

The only thing I love more than sketching is encouraging others to sketch.

Because of that love, I'm very excited to see my article, Sketching: the Visual Thinking Power Tool featured in A List Apart 322 this morning.

Here's a little teaser:

Adding sketching to the design process is a great way to amplify software and hardware tools. Sketching provides a unique space that can help you think differently, generate a variety of ideas quickly, explore alternatives with less risk, and encourage constructive discussions with colleagues and clients.

Even better, my good pal Sunni Brown's article, The Miseducation of the Doodle is also featured in A List Apart 322. It's a great day for visual thinking education.

Thanks A List Apart!

Thanks go to Carolyn Wood, for pursuing me until I submitted an article idea; to Krista Stevens and Mandy Brown for editing and streamlining my words; to Erin Lynch for his production guidance and to Kevin Cornell for his beautiful illustration work.

I'm very honored to be a part of A List Apart.
