@cm This is so cool, thank you for sharing your process. I am a visual person, but have always shied away from taking notes like these because I felt that writing them down was faster. Maybe I should attempt a sketch and see.

@cm Very inspiring seeing your workflow and really loved the idea of drawing over typed out text for consistency. My handwriting is a mess, but I believe with this technique I could produce something attractive.

@cm Thanks for sharing. I wrote about divergence and convergence.

@RossA Thank you! I'm hoping to get these done more frequently.

@jeroensangers Yes! My penmanship it really bad, so that draw over technique helps. All my images and text curve up and to the right, I'm working on that! Plus it allows you to tinker with fonts for different effects.

@purisubzi Thanks for reading! Maybe try to put just one drawing in your written notes? Start small, but look for things that are mentioned serveral times in the meeting or talk. That way you start anchoring the repeated ideas/concepts you hear to a drawing you make.

@cm How long did it take you to create this Sketchnote?

@jeroensangers I didn’t time it but I would guess 90 minutes. I did pause to take the photos and take notes for the blog post, so normally it would have been a bit quicker.

@rishabh that’s a great article! I never really considered all those applications of divergent and convergent thinking. Thanks for the inspiration!

@cm I understand. Anyway, that is still faster than I expected.

@jeroensangers I often find myself thinking I should slow down during the process. Especially on typography. The slower I go, the better the text looks.
