For this year's SXSW in Austin, Texas, we're teaming up with leading sketchnoter Mike Rohde to cover the talks, shows and fleeting moments of the festival. As a form of visual note-taking, sketchnoting lets us capture the highlights as they happen by thinking on paper through a mix of sketches and hand-written notes.

We're calling on those heading down to get involved and help us document the event by meeting analog with digital reporting. Eighty Custom Edition Moleskine pocket sketchbooks designed by Rohde will be handed out on Saturday 9th March at our morning meet-up at Jo's Coffee Shop. Have a coffee on us, get some last minute sketchnoting tips from Mike and spend the day filling your sketchbook with your experiences, whether that's a few words exchanged with a stranger in the queue or a groundbreaking talk from one of the most innovative business leaders today. Share your work with the #mSketchnote hashtag on Flickr, Twitter, Instagram or your preferred social media channel, and don't forget the myMoleskine gallery too.
Later that evening we'll meet again to share our sketchnotes with Mike Rohde and other note-taking enthusiasts over a drink at Mulberry to learn from each other and discover new ways of recording the things that inspire us.
Register your attendance here. Event details below.
