Sketchnotes: what & why
What are sketchnotes?
• Taking notes of conversations or ideas in a
  richer, visual way
• Less about words, more about visualizing
  core ideas
Benefits of sketchnotes
• Personally:
  – Improved memory & recall
  – Improves focus
  – Makes notes more meaningful
• Professionally:
  – Sketching practice
  – Material for your portfolio
  – Sharing with your peers
Some examples
Lee Gingras @ CHI
“…my notes are a lot more accessible to
me after the fact in this format.

Since I have to quickly take what
someone says and try to figure out how to
represent it visually, I actually do more
analysis and less transcribing…

Also, the notes are immediately visually
sensible to me and are highly browseable,
whereas my regular style of note-taking
requires actually reading.”
