SketchCamp offers opportunity to learn “common tool” Saturday
If you can write your name with a pen, pencil or marker, you can sketch, or so say the organizers of SketchCamp Des Moines on Saturday.
With an aim to empower attendees to discover their sketching ability and to better think through things visually, Design+Tech and AIGA Iowa are teaming up to hold the one-day event at StartupCity Des Moines.
"The whole goal is to bring everyone together and be like, 'Hey, this is a common tool that we can all use and it also helps us work together better,' " BitMethod's Amanda Morrow, the organizer of Design+Tech, said in a recent interview with Silicon Prairie News.
"When I work with Neil (Roberts), he can sketch just as well as I can but we're from two different backgrounds so that's kind of the idea behind it," Morrow (below, right) said. "(It's) like, 'Hey, we have this common thing that we can do. Let's all use it to better understand one another.' "
Individuals and teams from all disciplines and skill sets are encouraged to attend – whether you're a user experience designer or marketing professional, Morrow said.
