Graphic Recording & Visual Facilitation

Graphic recording pairs words and imagery in ways that make conversations more meaningful. Sometimes it’s called scribing, visual note taking, graphic harvesting, or visual recording. It is a wonderful way to engage and inspire your audiences.

I create graphic recordings for keynote talks, webinars, group conversations, slide decks and infographics. I’ve even done custom projects such as visually mapping a person’s life. I often pair this skill with facilitation to create highly visual and engaging experiences for groups.

What can you use graphic recording for?

Be more accessible to your audiences. Graphic recording can bring clarity to your event, group conversation, or organizational information. Visual notes help people follow along to better remember the conversation.

Create visual meaning from spoken words. Engage and inspire participants. Understand a conversation more clearly. Help your group move forward more easily.

Keep a record for future conversations. Provide a quick, easily understandable reference to a past conversation or decision. This can be especially helpful for ongoing work with a group.

Build interest in your work. Spread the message of your work by sharing graphic recordings online. Share them with potential funders to highlight your work. Add intrigue and wonder to gain new followers.

How does it work?

When I create graphic recordings, I am engaged in deep listening. I am creating visuals that reflect what is happening in a conversation or speech in real time. I am incorporating what I hear and see as well as what I feel from the energy or tone of the dialogue. All of this goes into the creation of a graphic recording.

Graphic recordings can be created virtually or in-person, digitally or using paper mediums. When the recording is finished, you’ll have digital files to use for print or online. If I’m working on paper, you’ll have the option to keep the original work too.
