- Sketchnoting, if seen as a methodology, exhibits potential for systematic and methodical research. It provides a framework to communicate visually through simple shapes, breaking complex forms down into combinations of dots, lines, squares, triangles, and circles. Situated at the lower end of the visualization spectrum, which ranges from napkin style sketching to photo-realistic rendering, it has low barriers to putting pen on paper. In the context of an industrial design graduate course originally introduced as a gateway to traditional visualization in design, sketchnoting exhibited greater potential to not only lower the threshold of sketching, but in addition, to foster creative, and in some cases, even boost design confidence. These anecdotal observations revealed several overarching opportunities for a larger, cross-disciplinary research, which would begin with exploring the ability to foster creative confidence through lowering the inhibition threshold to drawing for designers and non-designers alike. Proceeding to explore the potential of sketchnoting (due to its dual coding nature) becoming an entry point to employing all modes of thought processing, deductive, inductive and abductive logic as they pertain to divergent and convergent thinking. Ideally setting up this framework to be investigated as a means to improve student engagement and general learning behaviors. The long-term and underlying goal is to change how people see and solve problems and to diversify stakeholders involved in the development processes. This paper discusses the underlying concept as well as the originally observations, closing with the above-mentioned series of research opportunities.
