Use Visual Notes to Get a Snapshot of SXSW Sessions
One of the best aspects of SXSW is the wide variety of session topics. You can hear people talk about game mechanics, re branding birth control, tweeting strategies for non-profits, and location-based services. At almost every session, someone says, “there were 3 other good sessions at the same time. It’s so hard to choose.”
Ogilvy has provided at least a partial solution to this problem with sketch notes. During select sessions, an artist from Image Think fills a big poster with a visual interpretation of the talk. They display the posters in the convention center and print 500 copies of each one as well. I am very word-centric so these posters push me to think about information in a visual way in addition to helping me experience sessions that I missed.
