Investigating User Experiences through Animation-based Sketching
Peter Vistisen and Søren Bolvig Poulsen, Aalborg University, Denmark
This paper discusses the use of animation-based sketching as an approach to explore diegetic designs in the fuzzy front-end ideation of the design process. We present the results from a design workshop with more than 200 participating design students, and 16 companies. The participants used motion graphics and animation to sketch design ideas into diegetic design solutions. Through a deep-dive into two cases we discuss how animation-based sketching tech- niques supports the investigation of user experience aspects in design scenarios, and wether the expression is dependent on the visual fidelity or on how animation is applied to support a design narrative anchoring to the context.
Keywords: Sketching, Design, Animation, Diegetic Prototypes.
