Sorry about the silence here on the blog – I started a fulltime job at an IT consultancy and all the work I do there is confidential, which makes me unable to share my daily sketches. I CAN share what I have learned about visual meeting notes though!
During some phases in our process, we have a lot of meetings. I don’t know about you, but my mind goes blank after 5 minutes in meetings unless I actively focus to keep my concentration – and this is where visual notes are amazing!
- They make me listen actively – I find out what I do not understand much Quicker!
- I can refer back to my notes later
- I get to practice my live sketching in general (practice, practice, practice)
- They are fun to do!
After I participated in the same type of meeting several times, I started noticing I could benefit from a certain structure. Since I cannot show you the actual notes as examples, I will have to recreate the same layout types with fake content.
I am looking very much forward to sharing a couple of my go-to meeting layouts and tricks for easy meeting notes with you at a later time.
Update July 209: I am currently compiling a list of layouts that I will share once they are finished. Stay tuned.
