Last week, I had the pleasure of doing the graphic recording at the Jour Fixe – Medien und Entwicklung 2013, which took place in the Märchenhütte in Berlin. It was the first time I did a live visualization on large (100x200cm) cardboard panels, so I was quite excited, and keen to see the results.
I was also interested to see people’s reactions, but in the end I was too focused on what I was doing to look around much. However, the feedback I received afterwards was overwhelmingly positive.
I am pleased with the results, although I would have preferred the style to be a bit more consistent.
At a recent conference on ICTs and democracy promotion at Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (German Development Institute), I decided to try something new, and alternate between a fat and a skinny marker. At first, I wasn’t comfortable with it at all, but I kept going anyway. After a while, it started to feel natural. Looking at the complete set, I am actually very happy with the result.
The results of the Media&Makers: Juba conference have now been compiled into a beautiful pdf package, containing short summaries of the working groups, scans of some South Sudanese newspaper covers, and the sketchnotes I produced during the conference. You can download the whole thing here.
