Reseña del editor
This book gathers Eva-Lotta's sketchnotes from over 100 talks taken at design events and conferences in 2011. Sketchnotes are visual summaries created in real time during a lecture. They invite the viewer to revisit, remember and re-discover the main thoughts and ideas of the speaker after the talk. The book includes sketches from events like d.construct, Future of Web Design, Typo Berlin, Typo London, UXLX, Flash on the Beach, UXcamp Europe, LondonIA, Frontend Oslo, The Story, The Design of Understanding, Creative Mornings, and many more. It features speakers like Aaron Walter (Mailchimp), Aral Balkan, Chip Kidd, Chris Bangle, Christoph Niemann, Dan Rubin, Daniel Kahneman, Don Norman, Elliot Jay Stocks, Ferran Adria, Hillmann Curtis, Jack Schulze (Berg), Jessica Hische, Joshua Davis, Kevin Cheng, Louis Rosenfeld, Michael Bierut, Oliver Reichenstein (Ia), Russell Davies, Sarah Parmenter and Vitaly Friedmann (Smashing Magazine). In addition, Eva-Lotta also invited 10 of her favourite sketchnoters from all over the world to contribute to the book. They all sketched the same TED talk and created some stunning sketches that show off the wide variety of styles and different ways of summarising content. The guests are: Amanda Wright, Bauke Schildt, Carolyn Sewell, Craighton Berman, Gerren Lamson, Len Kendall, Matthew Magain, Mike Rohde, Paul Soupiset and Timothy J. Reynolds.
