An exercise using visuals to outline the steps of a process
Use this framework to show what a concept looks like in action with visual storytelling. Storyboards build a shared understanding by telling a visual story about how people in the future might experience your idea. They can also help you gain support from decision-makers and rally a team to bring the concept to life.
To get started using the Mural storyboarding template, follow the steps below.
Before you start building out illustrations, it’s important to get aligned on the main ideas. Use sticky notes to brainstorm and add suggestions as a first step, adding notes to the appropriate frames in a sequence of events.
Once you’ve brainstormed and captured all the ideas you want to fill out each frame of the storyboard, it’s time to crystallize those ideas into concise captions, giving you a cohesive narrative to illustrate.
Now that you have your ideas mapped out and an overarching narrative in your captions, add visuals to your storyboard. These can take the form of photos, icons, or drawings using Mural’s suite of tools — however you see fit to capture each moment in the storyboard.
Whether working collaboratively, use these tips to get the most out of the storyboarding template and approach.
