A blank sketching template with title, notes, author and project. The least restrictive… frightening for some.
A storyboard sketching template with 6 fields plus title, scene, people-power… You can use this to force everyone to think of multiple broad concepts quickly, early on in the project. Give them a sheet of one… and you won’t get many back. ideas. Encourage outlandish behavior.
For the engineer in us all… a task flow worksheet. This is great for thinking through a problem and all the steps needed to execute it. You can list the goals in the notes, or just write a little narrative about ‘Ernie the Earnest Engineer.’ Have fun. Give this to the novices.
Finally… dots. Dot concept paper can be an awesome way to think through a bunch of little ideas, little on paper that is. Use the dots to make interesting fun constellations and just spice up your sketches more than a blank sheet of paper. Wow your team. It’s the little things in life.
