Once the magic 240 words were finalised, and the storyboarding process began, both teams analysed. Are the verbal and visual messages working together to get the key message across? Would the point be accessible and understood by all potential viewers?
The result? Well, see for yourself. We love the developerWorks ‘Patterns’ video. And we have a hunch that you may too.
