Join me for a casual meetup Thursday, March 12, 2015 in Ann Arbor with Mike Rohde, author of The Sketchbook Handbook and The Sketchbook Workbook. Mike is in Ann Arbor next week to teach a workshop and is making time to get together with people in our designer community.
There’s no formal talk, just a gathering to chat with Mike about sketchnoting and get his best tips for taking notes visually, using a combination of words and pictures to remember key ideas.
If you want to see some examples of sketchnoting, browse Mike’s work on Flickr; you’ll see his sketchnotes as well as other designers who have taken up sketchnoting. I know many user experience professionals who sketchnote conference and meetup events.
Mike is a designer, author, illustrator and sketchnoter, living in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He is the author of The Sketchnote Handbook and The Sketchnote Workbook which I highly recommend if you want to be introduced to sketchnoting and visual communication.
I met Mike a couple years ago when he spoke at the IxDA Grand Rapids meetup about sketchnoting. I had a wonderful time sketching! I’m glad Mike’s returning to the Mitten State again.
This is a casual meetup to meet and chat with Mike. Drop in when you can, grab some coffee, tea, or your favorite beverage from Songbird and look for the tables with the sign
