What is included with this book?


Explore straightforward drawing skills to help you communicate product ideas exponentially faster than you could with text

In Drawing Product Ideas: Fast and Easy UX Drawing for Anyone, RSA Fellow and Google Data Visualization Lead, Kent Eisenhuth delivers a new and exciting guide to effectively communicating product ideas by drawing just two simple things: boxes and lines! In the book, you'll learn why drawing is important and how it supports the design thinking process. You'll also discover how to build your drawing toolkit by exploring your own personal drawing style.

The author also includes:

  • Strategies for how to use your drawing to support your solutions to real-world problems
  • Tips and tricks for applying your new drawing skills in a workshop setting, in real-time
  • An illuminating foreword by the celebrated Manuel Lima, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts

An essential volume for engineers, researchers, and product managers, Drawing Product Ideas is also an indispensable blueprint for anyone seeking to improve their public, ad-hoc drawing skills.
