Hand-drawn Infographics

I recently watched the following TED talk about using pictures like hand drawings to convey complex information which makes it easier for our brains to grasp. There was something that the speaker, Ole Qvist-Sørensen, mentioned that really inspired me to implement drawings when communicating at work or delivering training. He mentioned three main points about creative drawing:

  1. We are all visual thinkers
  2. We can ALL draw (it’s just a matter of perspective)
  3. Drawing TOGETHER is an important practice if we want to create movement

My Creative Designs professor challenged us to create a hand-drawn infographic with the steps to make toast. Take a look at what I came up with.

I love how simple it was to draw this out after watching this TED talk. Although this was a drawing I made myself, I’m excited to collaborate with others by drawing out our ideas. As Ole mentioned, when drawing together we start to think differently, listen differently, and collaborate differently. And we don’t have to be artists to communicate with drawings.
