Workshop formats
Training is offered through three workshops: Sketching for human-centred design, Sketchnoting and how to visualise ideas, and Visual thinking and communication for teams.
All three workshops are highly interactive, and training outcomes are similar – they just have a slightly different focus. Activities can be customised to suit your needs.
Sketching for human-centred design

A workshop delivered at Symplicit, with a focus on sketching methods for human-centred design

This workshop teaches basic visual techniques used in the practice of human-centred design, including how to sketch prototypes, interfaces, storyboards and journey maps.
Participants learn to develop a visual vocabulary, which includes figures, faces, objects and icons. Through practice exercises, participants gain the confidence to use sketching as a communication tool in the design process.
Sketchnoting and how to visualise ideas

This workshop teaches an alternative style of note-taking, which combines words with pictures in everyday notes to boost learning, memory and understanding.
Participants learn how to use basic sketching techniques to visualise ideas. Through practice exercises, participants gain the confidence to create more memorable and visual notes at meetings, events and work.
Visual thinking and communication for teams

A workshop delivered at the head office of an energy company, with a focus on visual communication techniques

This workshop enables improved communication and collaboration within teams by arming participants with a combination of visual techniques and active facilitation methods.
Participants learn how to use basic sketching techniques to generate ideas and solve problems in a team context. Participants are given practice at facilitating as well as participating in group activities woven throughout.
