MidwestUX 2012 - Sketchnotes Recap

Hi everyone, Binaebi here! A couple weeks ago we had a great MidwestUX conference pulled together by the UXers of Columbus, OH. Charlene McBride, Veronica Erb, and I led a sketchnote workshop the first morning of the conference, thereby unleashing a newborn army of sketchnoters onto the conference. Everyone did a fantastic job at their first attempts at sketchnoting, and totally blew our minds with their creativity!

Great work Cassie!


Live-Sketching a Presentation - Cameron Moll

Yesterday I was pleased to see Cameron Moll pushing boundaries in presentations by using an iPad to present with both pre-sketched and live-sketched images while he speaks.

This is in a way moving sketchnoting directly into the presentation — breaking down ideas and creating them live on stage. Love it!

Cameron writes in his article:

When I took the stage at DIBI 2012, I had an iPad in hand. After sliding to unlock, I opened Paper and began my presentation with this hand-sketched page:


As I took the stage, I was hoping to surprise the audience with a new form of presenting, as well as shake things up a little for the speaking industry.

Here's another sample pre-sketched slide:

New ideas.

A sample of slides Cameron crafted on stage:


Cameron, I love this idea and hope to see more people giving live sketching a try.
