  • If you want to sketch digitally right from the start.

If you are familiar with the digital note programs, you can use an iPad, Surface, Android tablet or another tablet with a stylus for digital sketching (you can watch an example video for iPad with Apple Notes directly). Or use my other course: “The best Digital Sketchnoting Apps & Tools” (at the moment only on German. But you could see the options anyway)

You will get practical methods for visual noting (sketches) in 7 practical sections. After each milestone, you can already interweave several Sketchnote skills through the accelerated learning format so that you can apply them immediately in everyday life.

And all without any drawing knowledge in advance.
