Storyboards are a great way to understand complex processes and interactions. They offer a freedom to consider and explore how things might “play out” for the user, with very few limits– and it’s chronological in it’s presentation. A storyboard can show both a human interaction and a back-end process, with hints of the potential UI Design. It’s flexible and it’s easy to make panels on a whim, only to discard. It’s also easy to grow, because you can elaborate by adding panels between the others.
The Life-Cycle of a Tag
In it a new tag is created, and it becomes a synonym for another tag, or a “community approved” tag. For team-mates to understand and rally around the new feature, I told the story with the analogy of a tag life-cycle.

My First UX Storyboards
Since attending the Adaptive Path UX Intensive SF, I’d been dying to try some interaction/UI storyboarding. So I jumped at the opportunity to create a storyboard about a new video tutorial wizard– and our team loved it!
The idea here was to explore potential opportunities and challenges we might encounter in designing and building the new interface. We wanted it to do more and give the user the opportunity to develop their content beyond just the video footage, and it made for a unique challenge.
