I’ve amassed a sizable collection of sketchnotes over the years mostly from conference talks. I started in 2010, and it’s been a really good run.
Although I’ve lapsed sketchnoting since not attending in-person conferences due to COVID, I’m still fond of the medium and have been grateful for the opportunities this habit has availed to me since I began my journey thanks to Eva-Lotta Lamm.
I was recently contacted by an editor for Uppercase magazine who asked if I would be interested to contribute to an upcoming issue on sketchnotes. They do some really lovely coverage of creative work and I have a few of their old issues lying around, so this was really exciting and I keenly responded with a yes.
As I was digging through my years of sketchnotes, it opened up a lot of memories for me, and so I thought to publish it here on Medium in case some of you readers are into this sort of thing. They’ve been sitting somewhat neglected on a Flickr collection for many years.
I went through a phase when I was giving talks and workshops on how to do sketchnotes and how to apply visual thinking to service design, which was a lot of fun.

- Sketchnote workshop 2014
- Visual thinking for service design, ISA 2016
Here below is a list of the main sketchnotes I’ve collected from various conferences and events.
If you scroll further down the page, I’ve added a few of my personal favourites and some reflections on what made them special.
