Visualize Through Storyboarding (cont.)
There are several different formats for storyboarding that vary in complexity from basic tables to complex software.
What format you choose or is chosen for you, is not as important as the components it contains. In other words,
regardless of the format every storyboard should capture these important elements to work effectively:
Content: It might seem obvious but the content component of a storyboard provides the subject matter expert
with the opportunity to see exactly what the message is going to be and how it is going to be presented. It is their
opportunity to review and approve before development begins.
Style, visuals and navigation: The old adage - 'a picture is worth a thousand words' holds true in storyboarding. Visuals should
include the graphical elements being presented on a page including size and color of font; backgrounds and navigation,
images, drawings, text placement and anything else that helps to tell the story.
