Sketchnoter's Stories you may like

Principles of Radical Management Sketchnote by Talia Lancaster

Today guest is Talia Lancaster .

She wrote:

"I have always been known as one of those ""compulsive note-takers"" in meetings, talks and training. At a conference last year, I took some notes and ended up doodling and drawing pictures alongside the content. Since then, people have asked me to scan in my notes from sessions so that they could use them. I really didn't know that others would find value in them, I just used it as a way for me to listen and concentrate. Since then, someone recommended Mike Rohde's book and I'm now absolutely hooked. Still a long way to go, but loving every experiment so far.

This sketchnote is a summary of the Principles of Radical Management from a book by Stephen Denning, which I thoroughly enjoyed! "

Interesting and informative.

Well done Talia!

First Sketchnote: Mariana Malugani

Here is the First Sketchnote by Mariana Malugani !

She wrote:

"Hi Sketchnote Army!

I'm very excited to share my first sketchnote with you all. I actually discovered sketchnoting just a few days ago and immediatelly fell in love with it, so I decided to give it a try.
I used this technique to sum up and put in one place all the ideas which are the basis for my business endeavor, CANDEXAR, where I help companies in Latin America rethink and redesign their recruitment processes including the candidates as stakeholders.
That's what I found so interesting about sketchnoting: you can use it to take notes, for instance during a conference, but it's actually a great way to summarize and visualize ideas in general with a personal touch.

If you prefer the jpeg file in order to upload the sketchnote, please let me know.

Kind regards
Mariana "

That is excellent, Mariana!

Visual CV by Brigitte Hulliger (plus video bonus)

An interesti Visual CV by Brigitte Hulliger .

She wrote:

"I've been drawing and sketching my whole life without any goal in mind. That changed about a year back when I decided that I wanted to start drawing on my iPad Pro and to try to make my first VideoScribe.

The story I chose is the story of my life - my Curriculum Vitae.

I had the big picture in mind - meaning, I knew that I wanted it to be a big ""CV"" in the end and then I started segmenting the CV into smaller parts for the different phases of my life. Afterwards, I just started drawing (and deleting, and redrawing).

The attached image is the resulting image when I was done drawing.
Afterwards, I decided to try to animate it with the software VideoScribe. The resulting video is published on YouTube:

The (few) words I used in the drawing are German (sorry). I hope those who don't understand them will still be able to follow the story.

As mentioned before, this is my first real VideoScribe and I hope there will be plenty more to come :-)"


Beautiful! And love the video!

Thanks for sharing, Brigitte.
