My top tips for impressive sketch notes

This week, I moved my playful interest in sketch notes into a professional context, and I "officially" became and artist in residence at a conference. To tell you the truth, I was very nervous, but as I got into it I was picking up little tricks and lessons the whole time. My first sketch-sheet is miles apart in technique from my last at the same event, so it's a very quick learning curve! I thought I would share some of my top tips here to help anyone else looking to start sketch noting, for fun or for work!

But first:

What are sketch notes?

Sketch notes are a way of visually depicting any kind of notes (meetings, speakers, lesson notes...) Usually they are hand-drawn, with a mixture of caricatures, icons and typography, as well as quotes, facts and figures. They can be any size, for yourself or for display, and often very interesting to look at as well as to read!
