This class will give you a hands-on introduction to wireframing, the drafting tool of choice for designers today. Students will undergo a simulation of designing a news startup in the space of 90 minutes. You will learn what wireframes are, what engineers and designers see in them, and how wireframes can be applied for your own projects. This class is suited for either non-designers who want to understand the creative process better or designers looking to improve their skills. Come prepared to pick up a marker and get your hands dirty!
