“Graphic Recording (also referred to as reflective graphics, graphic listening, etc.) involves capturing people’s ideas and expressions—in words, images, and color—as they are being spoken at the moment”. What this means is that expressions and words are captured and summed up as they are spoken using images, texts, and colors to accentuate the emotions and feelings of the speaker as the message is passed across.
Make boring presentations exciting – with a Graphic Recording session.
“There is no way to prove that we know something well that’s more powerful than by drawing a simple picture of it. And there is no more powerful way to see hidden solutions than to pick up a pen and draw out the pieces of our problem.”
Graphic recording, or graphic facilitation, is the live drawing of an event or the contents of a meeting using a combination of words and illustrations. Graphic recorders or scribes listen to the information and highlight the most important aspects of it using colours, words, and images.
Giving a talk, a training session, or any other kind of presentation isn’t easy – especially when the topic is complex and must be conveyed to a specific target group. This is where our visual artists and their graphic recordings come in. They capture your topic live and make it easier for your viewers to understand what is being said.
Have your presentation be accompanied by a graphic recording using a live visual artist. This guarantees not only effective communication, but also entertainment. Funny, informative images support your spoken content and succeed in making the topic both easier to understand and easier to remember.
We begin each project with a thorough briefing.
We’ll hold a creative workshop where we examine the topic and target group and present all the key questions that need answers. We give the target group a face by creating a user persona, making it easier to put ourselves in their place and really understand them and their needs. Your process, product, or service requires proper handling with respect to your target audience, so it’s vital we get it right.
Our visual artists always remain spontaneous during the graphic recording process and respond live to your wishes and explanations.
Another benefit is that the resulting picture can be reproduced as a poster, and can be shared by both you and your viewers in this or any other format. It will help you leave a lasting impression on your audience.
Get in touch with our team of project managers today. Tell us what complex topics you need to explain and we’ll take it from there to guide you through the process. There is no commitment whatsoever. We understand that if we don’t end up working together right now, we still might do in the future.

The service of a Graphic recorder or a scriber is a specialized one. It may look as though all the scriber is doing is simply doodling and coloring but they need adequate time to get acquainted with the industry, the subjects to be discussed, frequent words used, and other important aspects of the job to be done so that they can provide an all-rounded and knowledgeable depiction of the event. With the benefits of doodling and how it facilitates communication, Graphic Recording is a worthy investment in a business.
