Welcome to Engage Visually

Our approach uses visual thinking and visual thinking methods, mainly Graphic Facilitation and Graphic Recording, to support people coming together to plan, assess, create and do.

Graphic Facilitation and Graphic Recording, what are they?

As a Graphic facilitator, the focus is on creating visually interactive ways for people to hold their conversations and thinking. The Graphic Facilitator will work with the meeting or event owner to gather a brief and then to design and facilitate the meeting or event. 

As a Live Graphic Recorder, the focus is on the live visual recording of what is happening at a meeting, event or conference. The Graphic Recorder creates the graphic record by hand in large or small scale using paper where people can see the graphic record unfold in real-time. Alternatively and increasingly, Digital Graphic Recording can be employed and used at events of any scale and can also be used for virtual meetings and events. Graphic Recording may also be known by many names such as; Live Event Illustration, Graphic Reporting, Live Scribing, Conference Illustration, Event Capture, Visual Minutes, Visual Maps amongst other terms.

Whilst Graphic Facilitation and Graphic Recording are different they can also be complementary, they can be used independently or blended together, the diagram below (a work in progress) aims to illustrate some of the potentials that can exist between the two. 

Pendulum Model - Graphic Recording and Graphic Facilitation

By levering the skills and knowledge from the two ends of the swing of the Pendulum Model an endless array of potentials can be created. Using visual methods in a wide range of settings adds dimensions and depth to a host of activities including; meetings, projects, workshops, training, focus groups, events, and conferences.
