A sketchnote on how to sketchnote!

Sketchnoting 101

  1. The title of your sketchnote is like a book! It has to catch someone’s (or your own) attention and make them curious about the topic.
  2. The main goal of sketchnoting is to translate information from one language into your own! Synthesize the key points while balancing text and drawings.
  3. Start with simple shapes! Only add the level of detail needed; less is more.
  4. Add pops of color and shading to differentiate elements and help guide the viewers eye across the page.
