SKETCHNOTES

VISUAL NOTETAKING

Sketchnotes are a powerful tool to structure and organise bulks of knowledge into digestible pieces of information. They are as much a method of notetaking as they are a form of creative expression.

Visuals enhance successful communication

Used professionally in business context, sketchnotes are an implement of strategic corporate communication. Brain research considers about 80 % of the population to be ‘visual thinkers’, preferring visuals for making sense of—and understanding—information. Corporations delivering important messages visually take advantage of this fact.

Visuals help to memorise information

On a more personal level, sketchnotes serve as means of capturing, retaining and recording information for individual purposes. You can use them to document processes, plan projects, and capture ideas in books, conversations, events, presentations, and alike. According to a common definition, they are purposeful doodling while thinking things through, reading or listening to something interesting. They don’t require high drawing skills—sketchnotes are not art!—, but do require a skill to visually synthesise and summarise via layout, shapes, connectors, and text. This skill is trainable.

Hire me to sketchnote your event

If you’re interested to have me drawing impactful sketchnotes live at your conference or corporate event, or from a recorded audio or video, I’d love to talk with you.

I work on a flat fee (starting from 1499 Euros for sketchnoting a live event) plus expenses for travel and accommodation, or if I work from recorded audio, video or capture remotely, just the flat fee (starting from 749 Euros).

Fees vary depending on the nature of the commission and the desired features. I work in accordance with the guidelines of Illustratoren Organisation e. V.

My working languages are English and German. For the benefit of larger projects I’m used to team up with other professionals (like social media managers) as well.

Hire me to sketchnote your text

You can commission me to create unique sketchnotes out of your online or print articles, (popular) scientific reports and similar texts.

Use the sketchnotes either alongside your text to emphasise the main ideas, or have me translate your text completely into poster-like sketchnote layouts illuminating complex contexts in a visual way.

Fees start from 149 Euros. They vary depending on the nature of the work, and are in accordance with the guidelines of Illustratoren Organisation e. V.

My working languages are English and German.

Hire me for a workshop or coaching

Besides being a professional sketchnoter, I’m also a certified trainer. I offer empowering workshops for beginners, as well as advanced courses for those with more experience.

You can take advantage of made-to-measure trainings designed specifically to fit your industry sector and line of work, either for a group of employees or as individual one-to-one coaching.

I work on a flat fee plus expenses for travel and accommodation, or if I work within the Cologne area, just the flat fee. Beginner workshops cover usually two to three days, consecutive training and coaching can be either a full or half day.

My working languages are English and German.
