Ogilvy notes: an inspiration for student creation?

As I was looking for more information on Howard Rheingold’s book yesterday, I discovered the Ogilvy notes for his book launch from the SXSW Conference recently held in Austin.

I’ve noticed these clever drawings from the ad agency artist team before, but discovering an archive that includes the previous conference as well, made me really consider how powerful these visual summaries are for curating thought by presenting summaries of panels and speeches.

So what I was wondering was would this type of presentation work as a creative assessment of student understanding of novels, plays, films, historic events, scientific processes, their own research? Or could these Ogilvy profiles serve as models for more personal biographical analysis or This I Believe essays?

Huffington Post recently featured a slideshow interactive of the some standouts from Ogilvy Notes’ SXSW 2012.

(Warning: You are going to want to stop and study so many of these!  Other warning: Not all of these models are kid-friendly.)
