Sketchnotes 101: The Basics of Visual Note-taking Welcome to the second article in the the new Core77 "Sketchnotes Channel" (www.core77.com/sketchnotes) where we'll be exploring the application of visual thinking tools in the worlds of design and creative thinking. So you say you're ready to start sketchnoting.

These graphics are excellent visual tools for explaining huge amounts of information where complex data needs to be explained immediately and clearly. Infographic is one of the most challenging types of graphic design because the creation process alone is pretty intensive. Inspired by these I have put together a classic collection that will mesmerize you. Women in Business. Disney vs Marvel. The Big Questions of Climate Change. On Words. Cost of Ownership.
