Chatting With Eva-Lotta Lamm | Sketchnoting | Traveling around the world | Improv
Today episode is different. If you been following what I am tweeting/writing recently you would notice I am spending a lot of time learning about sketching. Long story short, I was reading “pencil me in” Christina Wodtke and one of the people who was featured in the book was Eva-Lotta Lamm where she was explaining “how to take your illustration to the next level” – her work and advice stood out for me. I started to follow Eva-lotta on Instagram and day after day I discover how awesome she is.
So who’s Eva-lotta?
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 traveling 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, helping her clients to make complex problems visual so they can ‘see’ them from a fresh perspective and work on solving them more efficiently.
We talk about how she got into art, and how she moved to Paris and then London. How one day she packed her bags to travel around the world. We chat about working for corporates vs freelancing and then we stumble upon note-taking and how she recorded her reflections through sketch noting and finally how she feels about paper vs. digital.
Not just that, we talked about improv and some deep stuff like bringing awareness in the learning process which Eva-lotta call the intentional practice. Really deep stuff.
I think you guys gonna enjoy this episode. So .. get a notebook ready and please enjoy my conversation with Eva-Lotta.
