For this year's SXSW in Austin, Texas, we teamed 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 called 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 were handed out at our morning meet-up. Over coffee, guests received some last minute sketchnoting tips from Mike before spending the day filling sketchbooks with their experiences, whether that was a few words exchanged with a stranger in the queue or a groundbreaking talk from one of the most innovative business leaders today. Search the #mSketchnote hashtag on Flickr, Twitter, Instagram or your preferred social media channel to see their work.
