Let's meet up and practice sketchnoting!

This is our inaugural meetup. You are a trend-setter.

:: Here's the plan for the evening:

  1. Welcome, get to know each other & setup
  2. Start the session at 7:30:
    • Practice sessions (5-10 min) on type, layout, sketching, lettering, pictures (You get to pick what to practice)
    • Long session, sketchnote a TED talk (18 min + 5 min to finish up)
    • Gallery of sketchnotes & open critique (15-20 min)
    • Maybe a second session if there's time.
  3. Wrap-up and what to do next time

:: Note about food/drinks

  • This is the first meetup, so we don't have a drink/food sponsor yet. I'm scouting for one for next time.
  • So come prepared with your own snack or drink so you don't pass out from low blood sugar. :)


:: What to bring

Please bring your own materials for sketchnoting: paper or journal (moleskine is great) and pens.

I'll have a couple of "work large" stations set up for folks who want to try their hand at big graphic recording. You can use my materials for the session, or bring your own if you prefer.

It's going to be a fun evening! If you have questions or ideas to share, post 'em here on the meetup site so we can get the conversation going.

    Sorry I couldn't make it. Job interview went way long and by the time I collected myself and ate something, I'd have been quite late.

    I'm down for lunch, brunch hours and weekends too! If you need help finding a place with lots of space I may be able to help too. The location I'm thinking of is Runway on Market St. between 9th & 10th.

    • Kate R.

      Nice! We'll need space for the October session so I'll follow up about that.

      August 15, 2013

    • Cynthia Y.

      Just FYI, spaces are already filling up for October at Runway. Just send me a message and I'll give you the contact details. :)

    I'm a UX designer for online collaboration tools. I live in the South Bay. Location out of the city will be more appreciated.

    • Kate R.

      Hi, Hueni. There are multiple requests for this, so I hope to balance location across the areas. The Sept session will be in SF, but perhaps Oct or Nov could be closer to you. I'm also happy to help get you set up for a South Bay group if there is enough interest. :)

    definitely interesting in attending the meeting, but travel can be a challenge for me right now. it will probably depend on location and time. fingers crossed :-)

    July 30, 2013

    • Kate R.

      My fingers are crossed, too. I'll let you know as soon as we have confirmed the space. I'm targeting Tue or Wed evenings.

      August 15, 2013

  • Kate R.

    Hey all: thanks much for the volunteering of space. I'm looking at a space now and hope to have the date settled in a couple of days. So hold tight...our first meetup will be in September, woot!
