Workshop Presenter Spotlight: Design Sketching: Rapid Visual Communication for Better Ideas
Jonathan Zobro is a designer with project lead experience in industrial and interaction design for medical product development. His current focus is on physical and software user interfaces that are task-focused and based upon research and testing to ensure an optimal user experience. Jonathan created innovative medical devices and high level concepts at DEKA Research & Development, including a robotic prosthetic arm for upper-extremity amputees, water-purification and power-generation systems for developing countries. This design and drawing workshop has been presented at the Sanyo Corporation, Nanjing and Ningbo Universities in China. Jonathan currently studies the Korean language in Seoul, South Korea.
This workshop will review the application and best practice of quick, effective and useful sketch communication. It will also review the methodology of creating quick sketches for communicating ideas.
“I hope participants will better understand the use and value of quick visual communication, and practice fundamental exercises to become a better visual communicator.”
Jonathan is a member of the Industrial Designers Society of America and the Computer Human Interactions Group. He maintains close ties with previous U.S. employer DEKA Research and Development and China-based contacts at “de.perspective.” He can be found on LinkedIn.
