Content and Material of Week 1

Dear course participants,

This week is the first week of our course: Be Visual! Sketching Basics for IT Business.

First, Martina Schuh and Johanna Wittig will give you an introduction to the week. In this first week, we’ll speak about visual communication basics and tips and tricks for writing. We’ll show you some tips and tricks for sketching in a larger format (flipchart/whiteboard) and walk you through the visual alphabet. As an approach for tackling more complex sketches, we’ll introduce you to the ‘breaking objects apart’ principle. Martina will guide you through the topic of writing. Here, the focus is on improving you own handwriting by applying easy tips. She’ll explain how to use a moderation font that enables you to create appealing flipcharts.

This week’s exercises will take place on a flipchart/whiteboard.

Materials for this week:

  • Approx. 8-10 sheets of flipchart paper
  • 1 round tip/bullet board marker
  • 1 chisel tip board marker
