Try This Trend: Sketch Noting

By Natalie Dupuis, October 11, 2016

Many things can inspire us as editors—design, stories, music and, now, sketch noting. We get excited about capturing moments and sharing them with others. One of those sparks of creativity caught our eye this year at The Orange Conference, where the team at The Sketch Effect sketch noted each keynote speech. We took a page from their (sketch) book using the talents on our editorial team, and decided to capture an inspiring moment from one of our own conferences by sketch noting.

Last year at Rejuvenate Marketplace (now Connect Faith), three of our 40 Under 40 honorees presented mini TED-style talks about how events can change lives. For our first-ever Faith and Work Issue, we wanted to re-create the messages shared by Janeen Davis, the mind behind The Navigators’ African American Congress on Discipleship; Luke Dooley, the director of the uber-creative and culturally important Q Commons; and Adam Kofinas, former planner for United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism. As each of them are event planners who have spent their lives combining faith and career, it seemed most fitting. We bet you’ll be encouraged to create more moments of impact for your event attendees.

Here is a page out of our sketchbook, filled with encouragement from experienced faith-based event planners:

An event's livestream can lead to increased social engagement, marketable content and an insider’s perspective to those unable to attend.
