The 4-Panel Storyboard

In preparing materials on storyboarding for this year's NUvention Web+Media course, Daniel Eiden, one of the TA's, included the following from Ryan Daugherty's blog.


Simple? Visual? Personas clear? Problem clear? Payoff clear? Solution explicit, focal and distinct from payoff?

Pretty impressive and lightweight. Panel 3 is what I meant by the Scene. What the user sees. No "a miracle occurs" allowed.

Could even be reduced to 3 panels if personas and problem can be conveyed in Panel 1.

I'm planning on making all my teams do these early and often.

[Update: in doing so, I have made one small tweak.]
