Website Discovery Process: Genie Gratto

Today we feature a work by Genie Gratto .

She wrote:

This past Spring, my work agreed to let me take a visual notetaking class and purchase three visual notetaking books (including The Sketchnote Handbook and The Sketchnote Workbook) as part of my professional development -- I wanted to see if the technique would help me focus better in meetings and get more out of them.

I have loved how it has changed my notetaking and my interaction with content in meetings, and have been slowly overcoming my lifetime of saying, ""I don't know how to draw!""

This sketchnote was one that one of my team members asked me to create at an internal organizational meeting at the end of a website discovery process. We were talking about next steps, how to proceed, priorities, outstanding questions, etc. I had agreed to take notes, and my team member suggested I try sketchnoting it.

Though I had sketchnoted meetings for myself before, this is the first time I did so with the plan of sharing it with the team after the meeting. I was surprised how well it came out, and excited to see that I did, indeed, capture the most important information from the meeting!

There are changes I would make, for sure, but I'm happy with this first public effort. 


You really must be proud of your work, Genie, well done!
