Headers are the areas at the top of the visual notes canvas, and they’re a perfect way to introduce the concepts. Headers give the viewers more context, so put them where they’ll be read first. Putting a header at the end of a sketchnote is like putting the cover of a book on the last page!

Headers include a combination of things. Because each situation is different, you’ll need to decide what to include in your headers.

A header can include a combination of any of the following:

• Name and title of the presenter

• Title of the presentation

• Event name

• Presenter portrait

• Event logo

• Date
