Hi, my name is Eva-Lotta Lamm. I'm a Designer, Illustrator and Visual Thinker. I grew up in Germany, worked in Paris and London for a few years before packing up my backpack to go travelling the world for 14 months. I have 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 over two years I am now based in Berlin.
I love sketching and drawing in all its forms. It is just a great way to clarify my thoughts, communicate ideas, develop concepts and remember things better and for longer.
I use sketching extensively in my UX design projects – both on my own as well as with clients, colleagues and stakeholders. Sketching is a great tool for collaboration.
Besides my UX work, I also regularly take sketchnotes at all sorts of talks and conferences. First and foremost my sketchnotes are a way for me to remember the interesting concepts of the talks.
During my world trip, I used sketching to keep a visual travel diary, capturing each day's interesting moments, people and things I learned.
In my personal sketching practice, I am exploring the area of Visual Improvisation – looking at the parallels between sketching and improvisation to explore how some of the principles from my regular theatre improvisation practice can be used to inspire visual work.
