Attendees of 29th Drive/ethology's UX Sketching Webinar will learn how to break the wireframe cycle, as the presenters dive into why and when you should incorporate more pen sketching into the design process. The webinar will cover how simply pen sketching your ideas, instead of spending countless hours refining wireframes, will help communicate them more effectively while making the customer part of the process.
