Relive TYPO Berlin 2011 “Shift” With Evalottchen’s Sketchnotes

In the bus on our way to the speakers’ dinner on Friday night I had the pleasure to meet Eva-Lotta Lamm. This German-born UX designer living in the UK does mainly web and interface design, but enjoys graphic design and illustration work as well. She is also known as evalottchen, and makes the most perspicacious and witty sketched notes – conveniently dubbed “sketchnotes” – during the presentations she attends at conferences. Always willing to try something new, the TYPO organisation invited her to work her magic at TYPO Berlin 2011 “Shift”. As I was sitting next to Eva-Lotta during Robin KinrossDesign as editing: an anarchist approach and Michael Johnson’s Forget the rules. Celebrate the mutable, the modular and the mashed-up, I was a privileged witness of the creation of two of those sketchnotes. It was wonderful to see a simple drawing in the upper left corner evolve into an intricate narrative filling the whole page of her square sketchbook. Eva-Lotta’s lettering is also a plus – cute but not cutesy. I highly recommend you discover her work, starting with her personable and very entertaining take on some of the key presentations at TYPO Berlin 2011.

See all of Evalottchen’s sketchnotes for TYPO Berlin 2011 “Shift”.

Eva-Lotta has bundled her work from the past two years in Sketchnotes 2009 & 2010, a 101-page book featuring events like UX week 2009, d.construct 2009 & 2010, offf 2010, Flash on the Beach 2010, UXcamp London, UXcamp Europe 2010, WebExpo 2010, London IA events, etc.
