Sketching Slides (due Oct 18)


This week's sketching exercise prepares layout options for your presentation slides. There are a couple of steps to this week's sketching exercise:

  1. Sketch out twenty low-fidelity layout options of your presentation slides.
  2. Select three of those sketches and refine them to medium-fidelity. Consider how you can clarify relationships of content through:
    • Use of proximity
    • Use of similarity
    • Use of continuance
    • Clear hierarchy of content
    • Clear contrast

Please remember to explore at least twenty options at low fidelty, and then refine three of them to medium fidelity.


Once done, please scan or photograph your sketches for submission as one JPG file. You will be graded on completing the number of sketches required and the readability of your sketches.

You are allowed to use this exercise as part of your project.

Your submission is due to Canvas before 8:00am on Oct 18.

Sketches may be shared

Please note that sketches may be shared and discussed in class.
