There are certain key elements that need to be included for an effective storyboard. They are:

Slide number:

Although the slide number seems simple it holds a vital part throughout the production. Numbering the slide like project name followed by chapter and screen number can ease several edit and review cycles.

Slide name:

As self-explanatory, the term describes the slide as a closing screen or splash screen. Slide name should be consistent for a seamless development journey.


Navigation description describes where the user will be navigated after clicking a certain element(s) on the slide.

Audio scripts:

Instruction to music and sound effects can be described in this section.


The thumbnails for the actual image are placed with detailed description and objective that helps the designer deliver the expected final graphical product.
