Essentials of Visual Language - Workbook

Essentials of Visual Language to Master Visual Thinking

About the Book

This workbook is a practical guide to master the basic skills of visualization, also often referred to as sketching, doodling, visual thinking, visual explanation, thinking graphically, business drawing and so on.

Although this is not about the classical drawing, this process implies ability of a person to quickly and reliably represent an object, phenomenon or a relation and therefore it requires development of some drawing skills.

This guide has evolved as a product of trainings on visual thinking and facilitation and also is a result of years of my day to day practice bringing drawing into my work as a graphical designer, project manager, product owner, agile coach and counting.

I would like to share my personal experience through this book and really hope that it will become a practical help on your journey of mastering tricks of visual thinking.

Enjoy your journey and good luck!
