Let me tell you about "Show Don't Tell":
We propose that "Show Don't Tell" be included as one of the core principles of the d.school. We taught it as such during bootcamp2008.
Visual thinking is a grounding tenet of the design at Stanford, thus visualization is already engrained in our design thinking psyche.
Why? Expressing ideas in a non-verbal way, makes ideas more compelling, helps us see problems & opportunities that discussion may not reveal, it leads to fruitful misunderstandings, and by creating an artifact, it helps groups come to agreement design decisions.
As principle, "Show Don't Tell" takes traditional visualization one step further, including sketching and traditional prototyping and adding digital communication and good storytelling to the mix.
Methods include: Communication Design, Graphic Design Techniques, Storytelling Techniques
Skills include: Sketching, Prototyping, Digital Visualization Tools, Video & Audio Production
