Kick-starting this week’s retrospective, here are some inspirational Sketch Quotes, to help you to push past that Monday feeling.


Want to know more about Game of Thrones history and lore?

No need to stare into the flames like Melisandre for answers - check out these nudenotes for a quick timeline overview of the past 13,000 years covering rulers and major events.

Massive thanks to Madalena Maslowska on for inspiring the layout and content.

It must’ve taken an age to juggle all this into a sleek infographic.

Episode 3 was so intense, and it was super difficult to avoid spoilers all day whilst at work.

It was worth it though, I can’t wait to see how it all plays out in the next final 3 episodes.

Stay tuned for more for more GoT nudenotes next week.

‘How to Build a Passive Income Business For Creatives’ from The Futur’s Youtube Video featuring Dustin Lee from Retro Supply

Wondering how to build a passive income business?

I know I am, hopefully this will inspire you as it did for me.

These are my notes on Dustin's three-step process towards a passive income business by leveraging your creative skills.

It’s got me all fired up thinking about how to turn my nudenotes into a potential new income, which enables me to have more focused time and resources to share and create more content.

I have a few ideas brewing which I hope to be testing out soon in my upcoming blog articles.

Stay tuned for more nudenotes on The Futur coming soon


This week’s recap notes: Storytelling in Business by Nancy Duate

I tried something a little different with this one - I used a pencil to create a rough grid to ensure a clear layout.

It took a little more time, but I love the finished product.

I’ve left the pencil lines in to show you the process of creating these notes.

I came across this via Pinterest and a post by Tanmay Vora .


This week's #booknotes, part 18 of my notes on Creative Strategy and the Business of Design by Douglas Davis

How to use empathy and story to reach consumers.

We all love a good story, but few of us see it as a tool for successful branding. It can be a fulfilling task to take a complex brand system and distill it down into a story fully of villains and heroes.

This helps you align strategy and creative teams, so they can working together towards that happy ending, like those classic stories we all know and love.

Happy ‘May The 4th Be with You’ Day, Everyone!

Based on the success of my Game of Thrones: Architecture post, here is the Star Wars version.

I can’t tell you how excited I am about the final instalment in the Skywalker Saga coming out later this year.

There are so many geeky series coming to an end (of sorts) this year: Game of Thrones, MCU and Star Wars - and I can't wait to see what’s coming in the future!
