Collaborative sketching technique layering may design options onto one very large sheet of paper. Starts by posting criteria like discovery findings and then sketching and arranging potential solutions nearby–first as thumbnail sketches and then as detailed screens.

Design the big picture of a site or application without getting bogged down in incremental detail like wireframes can. Collaborative low-fi format keeps project criteria at hand to build common ground. Large paper background offers “roll up and go” portability to take the work to others on the team.

Sketchboards are a technique pioneered by our friends Brandon Schauer and Leah Buley at Adaptive Path.
