The Mini Visual Starter Kit – Feedback and Practice

I often get asked by people: “How do I get started with sketchnoting or visual thinking?”.
One way of doing it, is to attend one of my workshops… but as this is not always possible, I created a nice and compact ressource I could point people to if they just wanted to dip their feet in the water and see what it feels like.

This Mini Visual Starter Kit is designed to help anyone who is interested to take the very first steps towards making their meeting notes and project planning more visual. It contains a cheat sheet with a basic set of simple icons to copy, tips for practicing and a set of methods for using the icons to structure meeting notes and plan projects visually.

So far, over a thousand people have downloaded the Starter Kit and from the feedback I’ve gotten, it seems that quite a few of them enjoy practicing with it’s help:

If you have been using the starter kit to practice, to make your meeting notes more visual or to plan a project, I’d love to see your work. Post it on twitter or instagram and tag me (@evalottchen) or just send me an email with a picture ( to evalotta AT evalotta DOT net).

Happy Sketching everybody!
