Getting Started With Sketchnoting


Published on

A 25 minute workshop on sketchnoting (visual note taking) which I ran at the UK UXPA Creativity event on 21 March 2013, in London. I ran the workshop 3 times back-to-back and by the end of the evening we had around 50 sketchnotes created by the workshop attendees! Mike Rohde and Peachpit very kindly gave me 3 copies of The Sketchnote Handbook to give away and I picked out 3 budding sketchnoters to receive the books. Thanks to the UK UPA for organising the Creativity event and Sapient Nitro for hosting! And a hat tip to Eva-Lotta Lamm who inspired me to start sketchnoting back in 2011.
