Eva-Lotta Lamm is a user experience designer, illustrator and visual thinker. She grew up in Germany, worked in Paris and London for a few years before packing up her backpack and going travelling the world for 14 months. She has over 12 years of experience in 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 two years, she is now based in Berlin.
Besides her UX work, she has been taking sketchnotes at hundreds of talks and conferences and has self-published her notes in several books. During her world trip, she documented her experience as daily sketchnotes in her travel diary.
Eva-Lotta is also a sought after expert and teacher in the area of sketching, sketchnoting and visual thinking. She regularly speaks at international design conferences and has been teaching sketching workshops at conferences and for companies for over five years. She is currently writing a book on sketching interfaces, based on one of her workshop formats.
In her personal sketching practice, she is exploring the area of visual improvisation, where she looks at the parallels between sketching and improvisation and experiments with how the principles from her regular theatre improvisation practice can be used to inspire visual work.
