Sketchnotes: Tools and Tips to Improve Visual Communication
Sketchnotes can keep your notebooks tidy, create new ways to organize your thoughts in real time, and create a compelling record of your experiences. For nonprofit professionals, sketchnotes are great for visualizing projects, documenting processes, bringing what you’ve learned at conferences to your colleagues back at the office, and more. In this session, NTC sketchnote veterans will introduce basic concepts of visual note-taking, and share their colorful, narrative styles.
- Why sketchnotes?
- How to get started
- Strategies for fast-paced environments
The entire session will be hands-on, developing a visual language approach you can start using right away.
