What are visual notes?
Visual notes are drawings that use a combination of text and imagery to convey key points from presentations, meetings, class lectures, or anything, really. Visual note-takers are not only expert illustrators–they’re expert listeners.
Having a visual note-taker at your event means that while you’re talking, we’re drawing. The result is a visual summarizing the key takeaways of your discussion. We can create one visual or many. It all depends on your event and agenda.
Visual notes have powerful benefits
Visuals stimulate the emotional centers of our brains.
Drawing information helps us understand it more clearly.
Pairing text with visuals helps you remember information.
Visuals make it simple and easy for everyone to get aligned.
The universal language of visuals helps people think and communicate. 65% of people learn better visually, so we create workshops that work for everyone–from students to seasoned professionals. In our visual note-taking workshops, you'll rethink how you take notes and learn the basics of:
- Listening & filtering ideas
- Organizing ideas visually
- How to draw visual metaphors
- Typography and lettering
- Using color in notes
- Improving your handwriting
- Much more!
“The boards were a great way to bring the conference theme to life and we had tons of people taking selfies with the wall. We found the illustrations to be a great item for social media around the conference and for driving awareness in general for Intacct.”
Peter Olson, Intacct
“Having you at our meeting was a true highlight and I cannot tell you how many attendees commented on how inspirational your work was; and how instrumental your artistic manifestation of the conversation was to the entire process.”
Cristina Marion, Dairy Management, Inc.
“We put the final images on canvas and have them hanging throughout our building, inspiring ongoing conversation focused on our most important issues well past the actual conference. They have inspired prospective students, donors, trustees, and partners. Well worth the investment!”
Susan Cusick, Chicago Theological Seminary
