Storyboarding My Lame Life, the UX Way

by Chris Offutt

Yep, storyboarding is a great way to learn stuff about people, good stuff, bad stuff…stuff they don’t think we know. The storyboarding exercise I did for my class gave me a lot of insight into the users of a potential product.

Then it dawned on me… I could sure use some insight about MYSELF!

Insights

  1. My dog is a morning person.
  2. I am not a morning person.

Insights

  1. Coffee is the only reason I have not grown a thick skin, a shell, and eyes on the side of my head.
  2. I have not been run over by a truck because I do not have to cross any streets before I’ve had my coffee.

Insights

  1. My car is slow because it’s a 1928 Chevrolet… (actually, it’s a Prius, but that’s pretty much the same thing).

Insights

  1. huh… I sort of look like a guy when I’m slumped at my desk like that.

Insights

  1. Doing Warrior 2 on a couch is difficult.
  2. I should just lay down on the couch and take a nap.

Insights

  1. My sisters are awesome (ok, that’s not an insight… I already knew that).
  2. Gosh we look an awful lot like Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women.

Insights

  1. Ice cream tastes better than salad
  2. If I only show “above the waist” photos of myself, no one will ever know I eat ice cream for dinner 5 nights/week.

Insights

  1. Making my dog stay awake with me at night is the perfect revenge for his morning behavior!

giving credit where credit is due: For the past 10 years I’ve collected ripped pages from magazines, cut photos from brochures, smashed DVD’s and chopped up Barbie dolls, all in the name of art. Since I have no idea from where I got most of the images used in this post, if you notice one that you have the credit info for, please email asap and I’ll add it. thank you! chris
