This week in #nudenotes: 13 May 2019

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


When you play the Game of Thrones , you win or you die.

To celebrate the penultimate episode of Game of Thrones, I present, in the light of the seven, my notes on the brilliantly geeky study published in Injury Epidemiology, as they dive deep into the mortality rates of the show pre-season 8.

You can read the full study here.

We’ll see how accurate this is after next final episode tomorrow (or tonight, for our American friends - I can’t wait!

Stay tuned for more for more GoT nudenotes next week.

Valar Morghulis!


nudenotes Journal 1

I finally got around to filming a flick-through of my first notebook.

This video really shows how far my style has developed over the past year.

It’s been an amazing journey so far, and I’ve had the privilege of connecting with some truly awesome people, even though my journey’s only just begun.

I’m just a couple of spreads away from finishing my second journal now - can't wait to share more video content with you all!


This week’s recap notes: Maslow's Hierarchy Applied to Human Need and Employee Engagement inspired by content from CFM Integrated Marketing

I’ve been on every level on this pyramid at some point in my career, but I plan on staying in the 'Rock Star' levels from now on!

It’s really interesting to see the slight, but distinct changes in the different levels.


This week's #booknotes, part 20 of my notes on Creative Strategy and the Business of Design by Douglas Davis

How to sell without selling, and overcome brand barriers.

Over the past 20 weeks of notes, we’ve been through all of the various elements of a creative project.

Now it's time to put it all together and talk about your ideas in the best possible way to ensure your concept is the one that gets used.

Presenting my ideas clearly, in a way the resonates with peers and clients is something I always think long and hard about.

There are some great insights in here that I hope you use in the future.

Check out my latest blog here. It’s a mini manifesto of what makes a nudenote.

Here’s a little taster:

"The art of nudenotes is NOT about creating the perfect piece of graphic design. All those imperfections are what make your notes unique to you. That's the good stuff! It doesn't matter about your level of skill with drawing or words. What matters is that you understand your notes! The ability to share them with others is just an added bonus."


That was this week in nudenotes - come back next Sunday for another recap post.
