The Making of a Sketchnote

The Making of a Sketchnote

Recently I had the pleasure of participating on a panel with Abby Ferri, Regina McMichael and Tim Page-Bottorff titled "The Superheroes of Safety Training Spill Their Secrets" as part of the American Society of Safety Professional's first ever virtual safety conference. I wanted a good way to share a summary of our presentation and since I love visual aids, I decided to have a sketchnote created.  If you are unfamiliar with sketch notes, it is a form of visual note taking that uses illustrations, symbols and text to quickly convey information.  As you will see in the video shown here, my plans were changed when my sketchnote provider could no longer provide the service.

Overall, I am pleased with the final outcome. If you would like to download the full final version (shown below) click here. Hope you like it!
