On August 24th Canary graciously hosted IDSA NYC’s first SketchGames event. We had a great time playing our first round of SketchGames. In the game, participants are presented with a common product and are then given a random mood-board from which to generate concepts. Time is short and the product/moodboard combinations get a little weird as do the ideas that come out of the game.
It didn’t matter if you were a pro or a struggling scribbler - everyone had a great time and got to meet some great people.
