Day 3, UrbanIxD book sprint

Most book sprints are a five days long, this one was done in three. One understands why the term “sprint” is used.  The level of thinking and writing is intense. Day two rolled seamlessly into day three as particpants stayed up until after midnight to enter into the last phase of the book sprint process: one of creating clarity, structure and readability. The cycle of proof reading and editing continued, as well as the illustrator’s work on the diagrams for the article. The graphic designer was the last to go to bed, after finalising the format for the book – from font to layout. The UrbanIxD team successfully produced an artical on crtical design as it was covered during their summer school.
