LEGO storyboarding

I’ve recently ran a design sprint and I had this “great” idea of writing and publishing a short post after each day to summarize tips and tricks, but logistics and facilitation took all my time away. Nevertheless, I found one interesting storyboarding technique that I’d like to share.

Storyboards are visual narratives and I’ve seen many approaches to creating one: whiteboard or paper sketches, digital comic builders, or photos of people in a slideshow. The new approach that really delighted me was building one with LEGO. It requires more upfront work than sketching, but the result is clean and feels more real, so it looks like a good choice for a storyboard that needs to live for a longer period of time.

LEGO even provides an app for recording and editing movies if you want to go beyond photos. Note: the app is only available for iOS at the time of writing.
