Overview of a presentation with many illustrations, arranged as a mindmap.

Last Friday was makesensemess 2022. Two hours of online geekery around the use and usefulness of diagrams as a sensemaking tool. All speakers chose to talk about such personal and heartfelt topics. Heartwarming and inspiring. Thank you Abby for putting it all together which such great care.

Thank you everybody for your attention and nice words about my bit.

Here's my presentation with notes (big file, will take some time to load).

Some answers to questions in the chat: – Mindmapping & presentation tool: xmind – Fountain pen: Lamy Safari, F nib, in the color Umbra because those have a somewhat textured body for better feel and grip – Yes you can buy Lego bird prints here :)

This coming Friday November 4th I'll deliver a short presentation at makesensemess 2022, “an Annual Celebration of Sensemaking”. Makesensemess is organised by Abby Covert, information architect and author of STUCK? diagrams help.

This edition will be a celebration of the many different ways a diagram can help. Although I have plenty examples of diagrams that came in useful during client work, I chose an example from my own creative practice. I'll discuss how a simple diagram helped me better understand what I had been working on up till then and at the same time clarified what I could explore next.

Check out the programme and maybe see you there?
