The Workshop is free but places are limited so, please, book your seat now!

See you there!


Ci siamo! Siamo riusciti finalmente a fissare le date e ad organizzare il tutto!

Il workshop è costituito da tre serate:


  • 11/02/2015. Cominciamo! - anatomia di uno sketchnote, gli elementi di base, il testo, la struttura, gerarchia delle informazioni
  • 25/02/2015. Idea Mapping - durante la serata svilupperemo un'idea con l'ausilio dello sketchnote, vedremo come la stessa idea e le stesse informazioni possono risultare diverse se vengono utilizzate differenti strutture di sketchnotes.
  • 11//03/2015. Appunti Live - vedremo un video, prenderemo appunti e creeremo uno sketchnote.


La partecipazione è gratuita ma i posti sono limitati: la prenotazione è obbligatoria.

Ci vediamo al workshop!








Sketchnoting ideas for a Startup project: Dean Dowd

Dean Dowd wrote:

These sketches are part of an ongoing collection that have to do with starting a business and startup ideas. It's easier for me to think when I'm sketching, I think it allows me to focus better. Anyway I hope you like!

We like it, Dean!

Here is Nádia Ferreira's sketchnote capture at the final closing talk of EuroIA 2014 conference in Brussels. A talk about Information and usage across times by Abby Covert. Three days conference about Information Architecture and User Experience.

You can find more sketchnotes of that conference and others (about IA and UX) on her blog.

Thank you for sharing Nàdia!

Use of colors in Sketchnote: Christopher Malapitan

Beautiful use of colors in this sketchnote by Christopher Malapitan .

I find interesting what he wrote:

 ... I've been limiting myself to three colors (black, pink and blue) which seems to help me focus better. Plus using color allows me more freedom in spacing my notes on the page. 

You can find other Christopher's works on his blog

Thank you for submitting, Christopher!

HR Tech Europe Sketchnote Capture: Frederic Williquet

When Frederic Williquet submitted this work, his comment was:

I love doing it

This in one of some sketchnotes Fredeic did at  HR Tech Europe and you can find on his website.

I particularly like the use of boxes and separators to define the informations flow.

Thanks for sharing with us Frederic.
