Here's an interesting video from TED of Tom Wujec, an information designer and Fellow at Autodesk. I thought it would be an insightful video to share here, as I've been focused on sketchnotes and visual note-taking the last few months.
In his talk, Tom explains the 3 ways our brains make meaning, help us understand words, images, feelings and connections. He also talks about why visual notes resonate so well with humans (sketchnotes for instance) and he shares the techniques Autodesk uses to plan strategically with visual thinking.
More on Tom Wujec from his TED bio:
