Today I would like to share with you short exercise which is often used in visual thinking trainings. This year I am going to publish a lot of examples from this area, because I believe that Visual Thinking is the base for information design and necessary skill for all who interested in infographics.
The task is to draw what toaster does. The less stages the better.
Art and drawing skills are really secondary here, you should think about the process, key elements and stages. If you are interested in such kind of examples, I recommend professional community VizThink, regularly publishing sketches, visual notes and all the staff, connected to visual thinking.
Below you can find exercise results, I found in internet. You easily can recognize most powerful and information concentrated.
And, as usual, a bit of fun in the end to show you the truth!
