"It nearly moved me to tears," a Ford executive once said of a Michael Santoro car design. "It's the best set of proportions I've ever seen on a sedan." In the early '90s Santoro was an upstart designer largely responsible for turning Chrysler's fortunes around with his radical cab-forward concepts and dropped-headlight-fender trucks, and me and my ID classmates were lucky enough to visit his Detroit studio. There we saw some of the most mind-blowing ID sketching I've ever seen, all done in one color with a Berol Prismacolor. I thought of this as I saw, of all things, these "Where People Run" maps released by Dr. continued...

Let's Sketchnote — MidwestUX 2012 SXSW Interactive 2010 Sketchnotes - Rohdesign I'm back from SXSW Interactive in Austin, Texas and I took along my Moleskine and gel pen to sketchnote it. This year I decided to capture the experience around SXSW, including my flight, food, music and other experiences (not just panels). Another difference this year: shooting photos of sketchnotes immediately after completion with my iPhone camera on Twitpic. I saw how popular this approach was during NaNoDrawMo and it was popular during SXSW. I enjoyed immediate responses from friends on Twitter, especially those who couldn't make it to Austin. Here is the full set — you can see higher resolution versions on Flickr. Thanks to everyone who encouraged me last week in my sketchnoting!

Sketchnotes & Visual Thinking: A Different Way of Note-taking Recently we had the opportunity to attend the Visual Thinking 101 Workshop with designer and illustrator Craighton Berman at the General Assembly in New York City. Berman started the Core77 Sketchnotes Channel and Coretoons, and he writes about the basics of sketchnoting on his blog. Essentially, sketchnotes are a form of visual note-taking, combining text and images. In most schools today, the current system of note-taking is a linear process and, in many cases, a rote process as well. The visual cues in sketchnotes enhance the recall process. Since we've sketched out "The Axis of Education" as a matrix for what and how we teach, our hope is to continue to seek ways to build a sense of discovery in helping students learn. In the larger sense, Craighton Berman's visit to New York coincided with the launch of the School of Visual Arts inaugural Products of Design MFA Program, which hopes to transform designers by: We dare say, isn't this what we want as educators for our students, too?

Sketchnotes: Building my visual vocabulary Okay, I’ve figured more stuff out in terms of expanding my visual vocabulary! =) Here’s my current workflow. Goals: Pick up different ways to draw things by analyzing other people’s sketchnotesGet faster at drawing things through practiceDevelop a visual dictionary of words and imagesDraw my own versions and organize them for easy reuse I get a lot of exposure to other people’s sketchnotes in the process of adding material to which now indexes 89 artists. I’ve also been drawing my way through the Bikablo® series of books from Neuland. Here’s a sample: I’m looking forward to finishing that and the Bikablo v2 book, filing the individual sketches, and then going through my visual library of other people’s sketchnote elements to draw even more of those… Lots of things to draw!

Sketchnote Army - A Showcase of Sketchnotes Today's guest is Jake Palmer Jake's bio on Twitter say: Graphic/Web Designer and Illustrator Interactive Media Designer Poker Enthusiast 1. Saw some of Mike Rhode's work on a site or blog. 2. No more typing reports on conferences I go to. 3. I use pen and moleskine. 4. Just go for it. 5. I think sketchnoting is a great way for people to see information in a way that isn't just text on a computer screen. Bonus. A great addition to the The Sketchnote Handbook. We thank you Jake for sharing with us.

Want To Spark Innovation? Think Like A Cartoonist On a typically warm Southern California weekend in February, 20 of us are gathered at the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art for a two-day seminar called "Making Comics." I’m not a cartoonist, but neither is half the class: There are teachers, engineers, architects, consultants, writers, editors, technologists, musicians, and one 14-year-old wunderkind of an aspiring graphic novelist. We all have at least three things in common: a desire to tell better stories, a love of imagery and visual thinking, and a fascination with the imagination. "Imagination is the mortar that holds comics together," says the instructor, who is a staple at Comic-Con. His name is Scott McCloud, and he had me at "imagination." Three weeks earlier, I had spent the afternoon with Scott, and my interview with him had convinced me that I needed to experience further some of the things we discussed. Three days with Scott McCloud will turn your head around. The story is random for a reason. Matthew E.

10 Brilliant Examples Of Sketch Notes: Notetaking For The 21st Century Sketch notes–or graphic notes, or whatever other term you like–are one of the single most important developments in note-taking history. Hold on, give me a second to explain. Exactly why they matter has something to do with the way our brains work, and the explosion of technology, and a little bit of viral success. The point of notes, it seems, is to capture important ideas for future reference. While it’s nothing new to take notes that combine images with words and phrases, sketch notes are actually an evolution of this idea. Then Ken Robinson’s Changing Educational Paradigms exploded across the internet, and the sound of the little marker squeaking across the whiteboard became synonymous with digital storytelling. Why? The water cycle has a story to tell that is exceptionally hard to document in an outline form–and impossible to do so engagingly or enthusiastically. And in the era of tablet PCs, smartphones, and instagram, this means everything.

Mitch Blunt Mitch Blunt is a UK based illustrator with an interesting straightforward style that pairs vibrant colors with flat textured shapes. His work is thoughtful in its execution and composition with compelling and often playful concepts.
