- From now on, everything on my slides is hand-made. No textboxes, no line art, no Windows TrueType fonts. Only hand-drawn illustrations and hand-written texts.
- I make an exception for photos that I want to show, but the photos are integrated in the illustrations, being part of the overall structure.
- Multiple slides together form a complete sketchnote which visualizes one short “story”. The narrative builds up the sketchnote as if it is flowing over the page.
- The whole drawing is visible (but dimmed) right from the start, and yet the sketchnote becomes more visible as the narrative moves forward.
- While the story moves all over the sketchnote, only the part I’m talking about is highlighted in color and then reverts to black when I’m done.
- The entire presentation consists of many sketchnotes, which build up in a similar way. A one hour presentation can easily be 300 individual slides.
- That’s why I call this style sketchkeynote. It is a keynote made up from sketchnotes.
