Flow Charts: Samples to Download and a Workshop!

September 23, 2010

Flow charts was the first chapter I (re)wrote for the 2nd edition. It is perhaps the best example of the “more illustrations” objective. Using NEADS, a non-profit based near Boston, as a focal point for the flow chart work, I could present a range of examples using the same basic content. This yielded a nice range of illustrations that are (hopefully) easy to compare.

The ZIP archive (~3MB) includes the OmniGraffle file and a PDF with all the illustrations. The figures are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike.

Flow Charts, The Workshop

Can’t get enough flow charts? I’m holding a half-day workshop in Washington, DC on October 15, specifically on how to apply this diagram to the web site planning process.

Here’s what we’ll talk about:

  • How to create beautiful and effective diagrams describing the underlying structure of web sites.
  • How to use those diagrams in planning web projects and how pictures can make the process more efficient.
  • How to “level-up” your skills in flow charting and site mapping.
  • How to walk through these diagrams with clients and colleagues.

Here’s what you’ll get:

  • A four-hour workshop in a comfortable training room in the heart of downtown Bethesda (October) or DC (November).
  • A workbook chock full of examples.
  • A chance to win a copy of the 2nd edition of Communicating Design.

The workshops are $299 each, but with early bird pricing you can save 15%!

    You have done an amazing work in your fist book. I liked the way this new flow charts are drown but feels that a tool for drawing it is missing. I know that is possible to work out a framework on adobe Illustrator (or else) to help us up but for me as a developer which also works with usability and architecture, having a tool is basic.
    Anyway I kept the concept but I would love draw the same as you.

    Great work. Good luck!
