Project Description

Visualise any idea in 3 images

For our project you'll choose any idea or process, break it down to its 3 main steps and communicate it through simple sketches, clear typography and effective layout.

As a deliverabe you'll create an A4/Letter sized hand-sketched sketchnote using black pens, a highlight colour and some shading that will visually explain your idea to everyone!

I'm visualising my 30 minute morning routine. Other examples could be how to survive a zombie attack, my newest invention or our strategy to win more business. If that's too hard, just think of your 3 favourite things.

A great skill to have to express ideas, record information or summarize learnings.
