The ability to take complex issues, a large volume of information, or the goals of an upcoming project and put it all in a nutshell is an increasingly important skill in many professions. Tackling presentations, pitches, or conference notes with pen and paper for a change is fun and can be learned quickly (really, no previous experience necessary!). Even researchers have learned by now that visualisation helps people concentrate longer, imbues presentations with an emotional element, and increases retention.
And despite all the digitisation in our daily working lives, pen and paper are anything but “out”. Ideas can visualised off the cuff, user stories written down, and workshops enriched with attractive flip charts.
Because let’s be honest – who among us yearns for the next “death by PowerPoint” session? In this workshop, we’ll jointly try out the seven ingredients for a good visual recipe, and lay the foundation stone for a completely individual library of symbols. And those who dare can practise their new skills for the rest of TYPO 2018 by taking their own sketch notes.
