Do something different at your next event.
Let us capture your event visually.
- Graphic recording often occurs on a large canvas to the main stage—visible to the audience, without stealing the limelight from the presenter. The illustrator acts as a fly on the wall, and creates a visual interpretation of the presentation in real time. Watching the canvas come alive can keep audience members more engaged, and the canvas can act as an inspiring way to reflect on the content after the presentation is over.
- Graphic facilitation is more interactive—the illustrator engages with the participants of a meeting or workshop, and captures their conversation visually, combining quotes, caricatures, metaphor, and other visual cues, to create a visual "highlights reel" of the day. In our experience, having a graphic facilitator present in a workshop makes participants more engaged, as they are excited to see how their thoughts are captured, and the more quiet among the group feel validated when they see their opinions captured.
- Sketchnoting refers to visual note-taking on an A4 sheet of paper that can be scanned and published online in real-time, tagged with your event's hashtag to enrich the back-channel, and given as a gift to presenters or attendees. We also have experience in digital sketchnoting, using a tablet computer that is projected live for the audience to see.
- Remote scribing works much the same as having a graphic recorder there in the room—we'll live sketch the conversation as we hear it, using an iPad or similar device, which can be projected in the room (if you have any local attendees) or shared in real time with virtual attendees. The same benefits apply as if your graphic recorder was on site—real-time visuals spark new ideas, attendees are more engaged, and you're left with a colourful, rich record of the conversation. But it can happen from anywhere! As long as you have an internet connection, there's no reason why your event can't continue as planned, with attendees distributed across the country, or the world.
- VR Sketchnoting is an experimental technique for taking visual notes in 3D space. Read more on how we are using technology to pioneer this space.
