Sketchnotes & Visual Note Taking

Mar 18, 2014 · Kingston upon Thames, United Kingdom

Sketchnotes are a way of capturing ideas (from talks, books, videos or your own head) in an engaging and visual way by combining the power of sketching and writing.

This talk gives an introduction to visual note taking by presenting the main characteristics that make it a great tool for designers (and anybody else) to capture their thoughts. It explains why this form of note taking is a wonderful opportunity to practise and refine all sorts of important skills for our profession.

Eva-Lotta will show and analyse examples from different sketchnoters, share tips from personal experience, and introduce the main principles and building blocks of sketchnotes so you will leave with lots of inspiration to jump straight into taking your own visual notes.

Eva-Lotta is a User Experience Designer and Illustrator. She grew up in Germany, worked in Paris for a few years and is now based in London, UK, where she works as an Interaction Designer at Google. Besides her daytime mission of making the web a more understandable, usable and delightful place, she regularly takes sketchnotes at all sorts of talks and conferences and has self-published her notes in several books.
