This is an approach to facilitating a discussion using a presentation of selected items from your portfolio that demonstrate specific values unique to a particular phase of your project. For example, if you are discussing visual design, you might want to illustrate values of beautiful typography, white space, or strong grid systems. Or while discussing information architecture, you might cover values such as clear primary calls to action, or shallow versus wide navigation systems. The goal of the discussion is to assess how well certain values fit with the client or department you are working with, and what values might not fit.
Materials & Requirements
- Optional: Sticky notes and Sharpies, for people to identify new values during the discussion
This presentation takes 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on the number of values being discussed. 4 to 7 is ideal, more than that becomes cumbersome.
