About this Hands-On
Sketchnotes are fast, lightweight, easy to create, purposeful notes. They can be a valuable tool to increase communication and break down boundaries to concept expression. They support the thinking and research process and collaboration with colleagues, service providers and customers.
This hands-on will give participants a space to explore and develop sketchnote skills whilst obtaining constructive feedback from an experienced tutor. It will be divided into 4 parts: background, examples and mark-making; sketchnote 101; applied sketchnotes; and Q&A.
