UX Designer, Illustrator, Visual Thinker (Berlin)

Eva-Lotta Lamm is a User Experience Designer, illustrator and visual thinker. She grew up in Germany, worked in Paris and London for a few years before packing up her backpack and go travelling the world for 14 months. She has over 12 years of experience working on digital products as an in-house designer for Google, Skype, and Yahoo! as well as freelancing and consulting for various agencies and her own clients. After being a (semi-)nomad for 2 years, she is now based in Berlin.

Besides her UX work, she has been taking sketchnotes at hundreds of talks and conferences and has self-published her notes in several books (www.sketchnotesbook.com). During her world trip, she documented her experience as daily sketchnotes in her travel diary (www.secretsfromtheroad.com).

Eva-Lotta also is a sought after expert and teacher in the area of sketching, sketchnoting and visual thinking. She is regularly speaking at international design conferences and has been teaching sketching workshops at conferences and for companies for over 5 years. She is currently writing a book on sketching interfaces, based on one of her workshop formats.

Eva-Lotta is the illustrator of Content Everywhere by Sara Wachter-Boettcher and The User’s Journey by Donna Lichaw, both published by Rosenfeld Media.

In her personal sketching practice, she is exploring the area of Visual Improvisation, where she is looking at the parallels between sketching and improvisation and experiments with how the principles from her regular theatre improvisation practice can be used to inspire visual work.

(Workshop) Sketching – Time to practice and play

In this workshop we will take some time to practice and play with sketching. We’ll explore sketching objects, people, actions and abstract concepts with a relaxed and playful approach. We’ll start with a simple warm-up, then proceed to different small exercises. At the end of each exercise we’ll put all the sketches up on the wall to learn from everybody’s work and to talk about different approaches and possibilities to deal with anything that is (still) difficult. It’s a nice opportunity to get in two hours of practical doing in-between the intense listening to the fantastic talks at the conference and at the same time grow your visual vocabulary for sketchnoting and visual thinking (if you are into these kind of things).
