Sketchy behaviour at Google

Jason and Sam visited the big G on Tuesday to run a workshop building on the hugely popular Sketching Interfaces session they did at Interactions12 (Dublin) and HCID (London), earlier this year.

Even though the Googlers rated themselves a mixed bunch, in terms of confidence and ability, there was some impressive sketch action on display throughout the session.

Despite the spread the standard of sketching at the session was pretty high

We had designers battling with producers and developers in live sketch-offs and the smiles even lasted when Sam sent them all back to school and gave them lines (to practice their labelling skills).

The tips and tricks were popular as ever and Sam’s custom rubber stamps (sketch it nicely once, stamp it as many times as you like) were a real hit.

Huge thanks to all the guys at Google who made it a really fun session to be part of.
