Live, digital, remote
Visual scribing is also called graphic facilitation or graphic recording. Scribing transforms abstract content into super easy-to-understand images. By nature, humans are “visual learners” – basically we’re far more likely to remember and understand stuff if we see it. Teaming pictures and words stimulates the emotional, creative and logical parts of our brain.
Basically an artist will draw live during your event. Afterwards, we will send you a digital file of the illustration which can be used on social media and in all your communication channels. You will own the copyrights. Visual Scribing can be done on paper or digitally and it is really effective for meetings, presentations, and pitches.
Each year Canon hosts the ‘Future Book Forum’ with the aim of empowering communities of readers and enabling publishers to find new growth. Visitors and speakers from all over the world, explore new technologies and trends in both digital and printed books.

The illustrations were shared on social media and printed in a book which was given to all participants as a souvenir.
The Royal Foundation is dedicated to raising awareness and encouraging more people to talk openly about mental health issues.

The Francis Crick Institute must be one of the architectonically most stunning buildings in London and is a great place to work.

We travelled the roads and railways with the Bank of England to capture the issues which affect the day to day lives of the British public through our drawings. The Bank of England wanted to understand how the economy is impacting the lives of everyday people. Always equipped with an iPad Pro, we provided graphic facilitation of meetings between representatives of the Bank and the community.
