Tomorrow, Interaction Design Association (IxDA) and Cooper will be hosting a free public talk in San Francisco called, Communicating Concepts with Comics.

Often, wireframes, requirements, personas and other documents have yielded unsatisfactory results – that is, when they are read at all. At Yahoo!, Kevin Cheng has been experimenting with using comics as a technique for communicating the core concepts behind a design’s intended user experience.

In this presentation, Kevin will share how this technique has worked well to get teams informed and on the same page, without fixating on interface details too early in the project. He’ll demonstrate an in-depth walkthrough of his process and the advantages he’s found using comics over other methods. Best of all, you won’t even need to take an art class to use this methodology.

I know it’s short notice, but if you’re in the area and itching to schmooze with San Francisco’s design scene, come check it out.

Here are the details:
