I love attending conferences. A couple of years ago, I started taking sketchnotes from talks, inspired by a workshop with Eva-Lotta Lamm. At Smashing Conference in Freiburg 2013, I started to show them to others – by posting on Twitter.

Making friends with pen & paper has become a useful skill when working. I now use sketching more actively when thinking, planning and communicating with others. If you think this looks fun, I wrote some tips on Smashing Magazine → How To Get Started With Sketchnotes.
