Capturing Ideas and Concepts with Visual Narratives


Chief NuggetHead, Nuggethead Studioz
Webinar Recording Details


Have you ever had an important meeting with your boss and diligently took notes as if you’re transcribing the entire conversation?  Have you ever anticipated taking notes at a conference keynote session because you were looking forward to the person speaking?  How often do you go back and read your own notes, though? Chances are we don't revisit our notes very often.  Why do we take notes if we don’t intend to do anything with them?  Our intentions and our motivation are there, but most often we end up looking hazily at our own handwriting trying to decipher a note.

In this webinar we’ll start by looking at the building blocks of visual communication and discuss what sketchnotes are by looking at various styles of sketchnoting.  We’ll look at ideas on how to organize your sketchnotes in a logical flow for later recall.  We’ll discuss whether it’s best to sketch live with a pen on paper or a tablet app, or a loose sketch and clean up your notes later with a pen and color.  Finally, we'll look at the 5 categories that make up a well-rounded sketchnote.
