Time for some paper prototyping.. Tooltips everywhere!!

Recently, as a team exercise, we sat around around a sketch book to decide where to place helpful tooltips on our interactive marker application. With a little cutting and writing this is what we came up with:


Conventionally, designing a set of tool tips like this might result in a long and boring email thread discussing specifications and showing edited screenshots, or a couple of hours of  design activities (using a browser inspector, whose contents could have been lost on accidentally pressing back or refresh).

Instead we did this as a fun  visual exercise that we finished in less than an hour with everyone understanding what was needed on the page.
