Graphic Facilitation & Graphic Recording. Bringing thoughts together and ideas to life

Graphic Recorder Graphic Facilitator

Graphic Facilitation and Graphic Recording, described below, are two parts of our practice and whilst they can be used independently they can also be used in combination.

Graphic Facilitation A Graphic Facilitator focuses 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.

Graphic Recording A Graphic Recorder focuses on live event visual recording. visually capturing the flow of ideas, concepts, content and comments from discussions or presentations live whilst they are happening. A Graphic Recording is usually captured on giant-scale paper/wall displays creating a dynamic and visual record of the event.

Graphic recording is also known by a whole range of other names including; Live Event Illustration, Graphic Reporting, Live Scribing, Conference Illustration, Event Capture, Visual Minutes, Visual Maps amongst other terms.- we genuinely don’t mind the terms you use as this is a live, emerging and changing field of work 🙂

Digital graphic recording is Graphic Recording but created digitally. The live event is captured by hand with a digital drawing tool and the graphic Record can be projected live on screens at events/meetings as it unfolds. Digital graphic recording is also be used for virtual meetings and events.

Bespoke visuals that help tell a specific story (a strategy, a plan, a vision).

Animations Hand drawn bespoke visuals/storyboards brought to animated life.

Below is a link to a relatively recent animation based on a paper summing up the potential career development route for people involved in Peer Support in mental health.

Workshops and Training; Graphic Facilitation and/or Graphic Recording training and Sketch noting workshops 
for people and organisations to develop their own use of visual thinking and visual practice tools.

Almost every great piece of work has a unique need and that is why where possible we really like to get started with a great conversation.

We are UK-based and work globally.
