How to Doodle Networking
If someone asked you to visualize NETWORKING, what would you draw? Let’s try and keep this very simple by using straightforward icons. Begin your networking doodle by drawing an oval in the middle of your page. Make sure that the oval isn’t too large as you will be drawing additional ovals in the next step.
In this step, draw more ovals around the central oval. In the example, I have doodled 8 ovals. Notice how each of these oval shapes are small than the central oval shape. Notice also the spacing of each of the shapes. You, of course, don’t necessarily need to draw it exactly as shown within the example. How you spread these oval shapes is completely up to you.
Within each of the oval shapes, draw an icon of a person. Use a small oval shape for the head and then a couple of arc shapes and a straight line for the body. The icons don’t necessarily need to look the same. You can, for instance, add some features to each icon to make it look more unique. You can also add gender-specific features such as hair or use a triangle for the dress.
Let’s now connect the various oval shapes with straight lines. You will notice in the example how the line connections have been randomized. There are no fixed or specific rules here. Feel free to connect the icons whichever way you wish.
Add the finishing touches to your doodle by giving it some color. Notice how the central figure is a different color. This represents the person who initiates the networking. And there we have it. This is our visual representation of NETWORKING. It shows how the central figure connects with all the figures around them. How many other ways can you think of to visualize the idea of networking?
