Do you need to be an artist to think visually and create sketchnotes?

Absolutely not! Well that was a short blog post. Just kidding!

You do not need to be an artist to think visually or create sketchnote-style notes. Visual thinking is a natural ability that we all possess to some degree, and it can be developed and improved over time with regular practice.

The beauty of sketchnote-style notes is that they are meant to be quick, simple, and easy to create. You don't need to be able to draw photorealistic images or intricate designs to make effective sketchnote-style notes. In fact, some of the most effective sketchnote-style notes are made up of simple stick figures and basic shapes - usually on a white background!

The key to successful sketchnote-style note-taking is to focus on capturing the key ideas, concepts and information in a visually engaging way. This means using images, symbols, and diagrams to represent ideas, rather than relying solely on written text. It's about breaking down the information, understanding which layout would work bets and make most sense. It's about finding a balance between words and visuals that works best for you.

So, if you're hesitant to try sketchnote-style note-taking because you don't think you're a good artist, don't let that hold you back. Give it a try - with practice, you may be surprised at how quickly you improve and how effective your sketchnote-style notes become.
