A workshop on sketchnoting that I ran at UX Cambridge 2013. The workshop is aimed at beginners who haven't tried sketchnoting before. Hat tip to Mike Rhode and his fantastic resource, The Sketchnote Handbook.
This was the abstract for the workshop:
Inspired by sketchnotes, but not sure where to start? In this very practical workshop Michele will take you through the end-to-end process of live sketchnoting, sharing tips and techniques to get you started. During the workshop, you'll get an opportunity create your own sketchnote!
Sketching is a valuable skill for UX designers which can be used at all stages of the product design process to explore and communicate ideas. Sketchnoting helps to maintain and develop your sketching skills, as well as providing a memorable record of talks and workshops you've attended. And you don't have to be great at drawing to get started.
In the last few years sketchnoting has become increasingly popular at UX events and conferences. Earlier this year Mike Rohde published The Sketchnote Handbook, which is an invaluable guide for any aspiring sketchnoter. Michele has been creating sketchnotes since November 2011 and as a relative newcomer to the sketchnoting community, is keen to share what she has learned along the way.
