I’m now a Pencil Pirate

The course

The course is split into four sections:

  • The mental model to use when creating an atomic visuals and patterns can be used to make it easier to identify the best structure for the atomic visual to get your point across better
  • The tools and how to use them, this section is very specific to different apps so I just followed the appropriate one for the tools I had access to
  • How to apply atomic visuals for business needs like meetings and presentations

Putting it use

In order to form the habit I’ve started building basic stick figure illustrations to help illustrate some of the topics I talk about at work but I can’t share those because of the content.

My first attempt at a step by step atomic visual on how to move away from iCloud / Google Drive

Was it worth it?

Overall I think yes, although I wish I wasn’t busy when it all kicked off so I could have participated when all the events were happening.
