Spend half a day thinking and drawing with the founders of ImageThink, the official graphic recorders of SXSW 2014 in this hands on, interactive session.

Can’t draw a stick man? No problem! Simply doodling can improve your recollection, build neural connections and improve holistic thinking. Learn how taking notes visually will help you stay focused and recall all you learn at SXSW.

Have a problem or a project that is stalled? Turn it into a visual story and get a new perspective. We’ll show you basic models for organizing projects, data and information of all kind. Learn how to support and clarify complex ideas, spur creativity, solve problems, and collaborate better by simply picking up a pen.

The first hour will explore the science behind visual problem solving. After a quick break we will focus enhancing listening, organizational, and drawing skills for taking visual notes throughout the conference.

By the end of the day you will learn:

How to tell a better story with visuals.

Drawing skills you didn’t know you had!

Simple icons to help make your notes at SXSW more engaging and memorable.

Prerequisites:
None.
