A container any kind of shape or border that goes around information in your sketchnote.
You can use containers to embellish or reinforce the meaning of the information while bringing your page to life visually.
Using containers this way is a very intuitive process, and you can make it as simple or complicated as you’re comfortable with. Whatever feels right in the moment is perfect!
Here are some examples that you can try right away. Don’t feel like you have to limit yourself to these, though. This is a fantastic way to start adding more “drawing” elements that connect to the meaning of the information. The more comfortable you get, the more fun you can have! Using containers in this way is starting to build your visual vocabulary!
