Visual note-taking is a powerful tool for design professionals who want to capture ideas and communicate them effectively. Known as sketchnoting or graphic recording, this practical technique enables you to capture key points of an idea, recall content and take action on new learnings. Whether used as a personal tool or as a facilitation method for group collaboration, visual notes are a powerful way to create memorable, engaging info summaries.
In this hands-on workshop, participants in the XYC youth summer program developed a visual vocabulary of images of things and concepts, learned simple lettering techniques, and got familiar with structuring information into common layout patterns. Then they brought it all together by capturing visual notes in real time from video, and got feedback and inspiration in a group critique.
If you're new to visual notetaking, this is a fun and fast way to get started. If you're a seasoned sketcher or visual note-taker, you can review this deck to advance your practice.
