Our Story

After taking page after page of notes in meetings and lectures, our founder Ashton eventually realize that she had absorbed almost nothing. Shew was left fustrated and anxious, feeling like she couldn’t keep up. With barely any drawing skills, she tried her first sketchnote in an attempt to bring more fun into the learning process. Her mind was blown:

“it was fun, it was easy – and I remembered the material!”

Since then, Ashton turned sketchnoting into a career as a professional sketchnoter where she developed techniques to live-illustrate over 2500 seminars, lectures, and meetings all over North America.

Now, on a mission to teach others how to harness their creativity, embrace imperfection, and capture information in powerful and fun new ways we bring you: Sketchnote School!

“We believe that sketchnoting is more than just sketching and note-taking: It’s a playful skill that you can polish to make continuous learning easier in every aspect of your life.”

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
