One of the first most important things you do when you start a sketchnote is to ask yourself portrait or landscape. After that you must decide on your title. Once those two things are established your structure becomes easier to figure out. Keep your structure in mind as you are creating your sketchnote. If you are working digitally it is easier to move things around and help your structure make more sense. If you are doing an analog sketchnote having a clear picture of your topic and flow is key to having a well organized sketchnote.
