Typography and Lettering: Licheng Tay

Very nice use of typography and lettering in these sketchnotes from Licheng Tay.

Licheng writes:

I tend to chunk up phrases that I pick up into bits and pieces. I am very inspired by typographic posters, so here's my brand of sketchnotes done during a really long meeting.

Thanks for sharing!

First Sketchnotes: Kati Mohr

Here is one of Kati's first sketchnote. You can see other sketchnotes on her website  

She say: 

So any sketchnote of me might be a bit of rulebreaking because I love to mix and shake my ideas like cocktails...

That's the spirit, Kati!

CSSConf Sketchnote: Susan Lin

Here are some beautyful sketchnotes Susan captured from CSSconf .

I love the bleng of colors, calligraphy and shades she obtains using a Kuretake's brush pens.

She wrote:

"This was my first developer conference, so I was nervous about how differently my sketch notes may have been since I usually sketch design centric events. It worked out, :) A bit more use of the small ink pen to capture some code snippets, but otherwise similar."

Don't miss other sketchnote from Susan, here and here

A beautiful work, Susan!

First Sketchnote: Matthew Landkamer

Here is a great example of first sketchnotes from Matthew Landkamer. I like how he's using the subtle red highlights to add depth and interest.

Great work Matthew!
