Date posted: February 27, 2014

Milwaukee – Designer Mike Rohde will speak at Wisconsin Lutheran College on Wednesday, March 26, 2014, at 7:30 p.m. on the topic of "Lessons Learned from Sketchnotes." The lecture is presented by the WLC Media Design program.

2014 Mike Rohde lecture

Rohde, author of The Sketchnote Handbook, will discuss how he discovered sketchnotes and how it changed his life for the better. He'll also cover the challenges in watching it grow and having to make a decision whether to try to "keep it for himself," if that were possible, or "become a leader in the community" which is what he chose in the end.

Rohde is a designer, author, illustrator, and sketchnoter from Milwaukee who has a passion for simple and usable design solutions. He believes it's important to share thoughts, ideas, and process, so others can draw insight from his experiences.

The lecture will be held in the Reichel Lecture Hall (FM 15) on the mezzanine level of the college's Center for Arts and Performance, 8815 W. Wisconsin Avenue. It is free and open to the public; no reservations are required.

The purpose of the Digitally Engaged Talk & Lecture Series is to promote technology, the humanities, and media design to WLC and the community, giving the audience the opportunity to meet professional, creative people from around the country.
