Sketchnotes and Visual Note Taking
Eva-Lotta Lamm, 18 March 2014
Sketchnotes are a way of capturing ideas (from talks, books, videos or your own head) in an engaging and visual way by combining the power of sketching and writing.
This talk was an introduction to visual note taking, presenting the main characteristics that make it a great tool for designers (and anybody else) to capture their thoughts. It explained why this form of note taking is a wonderful opportunity to practise and refine all sorts of important skills for our profession.
Eva-Lotta presented and analysed examples from different sketchnoters, shared tips from personal experience, and introduced the main principles and building blocks of sketchnotes, leaving us with lots of inspiration to jump straight into taking our own visual notes.
