TEDxACCD: Beauty in the Fall

Visual Note-taking

TEDxACCD    Beauty of the Fall


Failure is an inherent and fundamental experience of life. As human beings, we walk blindly into the world, striving to satisfy our needs, passions, and dreams although our fulfillment is not guaranteed. However, failure is a purifying process that strips away the inessential, revealing our inner selves and the utmost potential.

Do you dare to fail?

This was a challenging but fun process for me because I did not have any prior experience with visual note-taking. Empowered by the theme -- embracing failure, I decided to go outside of my comfort zone and explore this way of illustrating and documenting. Through this process, I learned to use minimal colours, rhythmic shape languages, and interesting typefaces for an engaging visual conversation.
