About This Class

Conventional note taking is fast fading. Line by line, the note taking style we were once taught in school is evaporating, and in its place an exciting alternative is emerging. Sketchnoting, or visual note taking, combines words with pictures in everyday notes to boost learning, memory and understanding.

It’s practical, it’s impactful, and it’s fun. This workshop will show you the basics, from visual techniques to hands-on exercises. Ditch the lined paper, and join the movement on better visual thinking.

Takeaways

  • Understand how to use basic elements to sketch objects, figures and almost anything
  • Learn how to create graphic recordings in meetings, events and at work
  • Learn how to listen for the big ideas and communicate them visually
  • Practice drawing exercises and improve your visual vocabulary

Prereqs & Preparation

No drawing skills required, just an open and willing attitude to learning, sharing your findings and diving into new concepts and sketching techniques. That's it!

Please bring a pencil and a fine-line marker.

About the Instructor

Ben Crothers has been involved in design since before Netscape ruled the www, and in digital strategy for about the last 10 years. Ben is currently Principal Designer at Atlassian, and spends a lot his time teaching design techniques, running strategic workshops, and helping teams be more creative and to focus on the right things. Previous to Atlassian, Ben was a design consultant at Second Road (a strategic innovation consultancy), and directed several projects to help companies and government departments be more creative in solving complex problems for their customers and communities.

Above all, Ben wants everyone to be just as good at the whiteboard as they are at the keyboard, to be better at thinking, communicating, and solving problems visually. He's packed years of experience into practical tips and exercises in his book Presto Sketching: Simple Drawing for Brilliant Product Thinking and Design.

He enjoys extreme sports like abstract painting and brewing beer.
