Check out this video tutorial for a little guidance on how to make this happen for yourself. And then get to it with the modified version of the Learning Experience Snapshot found below.
This is almost the same as the basic snapshot template you used last time. The difference is just the emphasis on the three key components and the requirement for tight constructive alignment. The task is to focus on pressure-testing that aspect of your design so you think it represents your best foot forward.
Again, we’d encourage you to print it off and do it with pen, paper, and Post-It Notes first. Put anything distracting away, clear your mind, and let yourself focus on the fundamentals of what your project is really all about. And this time, on what else might be out there to inspire diverging and converging to the most aligned version of your idea.
A snapshot like this still doesn’t contain everything you need to make your design a reality – so you may be working with multiple snapshots. As discussed in the video above, alignment is key in all dimensions, so look for it in every aspect of your design.
