Acceptable use of Sketchnote Hangout

Posted on Updated on

Sketchnote Hangout has built an established brand and trademark over 28 months. The use of the term Sketchnote Hangout by other physical or online meetups or hangouts has caused confusion amongst the sketchnote community (legally this is known as ‘passing off‘). This is a polite reminder that use of the term Sketchnote Hangout is perfectly acceptable as long as it’s made clear that these are distinct from Sketchnote Hangout i.e., Sketchnote Hangout on Eventbrite, @SN_Hangout #SNhangout and #SketchnoteHangout on Twitter, and @SN_Hangout, #SNhangout and #SketchnoteHangout on Instagram. I cannot answer questions, provide clarification, offer or guarantee places, validate the success or delivery, or endorse or promote these other sketchnote hangouts or meetups. 

SNhangout No. 27 Warm Up Task ‘Drawing Song Titles’ with Josie Dee

Posted on Updated on

SNhangout Warmup

This amazingly fun warm up task was created by Josie Dee, an avid sketchnoter who has been sketchnoting for the last 18 months or so. Josie has always been a visual thinker and many of her theatre devising, directing and writing hours are captured visually on post-its and most started with the listening and visualisation of music.
