Hi all,

I'm a tech writer specializing in very technical instructional content
for DBAs and Developers. I write courses, tutorials, how-to's - that
kind of thing.

I'm not a particularly "visual" person. I tend to think in text. I want
to be able to create better content that uses visuals and diagrams to
get points across. Not only are the diagrams I create pretty "meh", but
I'm sure I miss opportunities where diagrams would be a better option
than words.

My question to this list is: can anyone recommend any good books,
courses, articles, etc that would help me become a better "visual
thinker" and perhaps help me learn some basic design skills too?

Many thanks in advance.
