Live Scribing by hand takes place live at your location, illustrating on large-scale posters or canvases. We recommend it for events such as team strategy days, or for internal events that require an intimate, interactive setting. By participating in this workshop, participants will have the opportunity to co-create and watch a masterpiece come to life. 

Therefore, if you love classics and real-life people’s engagements, pick the hand-drawn, location-based scribing option. If you would like to work with our artists, they will co-create a design with you. Finally, if you would like a Live Scriber to play a more active part at your event, we offer Graphic Facilitation service.

How does Live Scribing work?

Live Scribing helps filter information and present it in an illustrated mind map where we see links and connections between ideas and messages supported by illustrations. People can digest, perceive, and memorise information more efficiently if information is presented in this manner. Most people learn by seeing things, so this tool is perfect for those who learn visually.

We provide visual documentation of your in-person live scribing session if you hire our Live Scribes. Our visual summary can be added to follow-up emails, blogs, social media, and presentations. Live illustrations serve as a useful reminder of what was accomplished. So, those who missed an event can catch up with it afterwards.

Our graphic recording artists rely on passive listening, which is listening without reacting. By doing so, they will be able to interpret ideas without being influenced by other factors. It’s hard to communicate complex subjects, so we use metaphors and visuals to simplify them. You can hire our artists to co-create design ideas with you. Check out our Live Scribing services.

Where businesses use mind maps after the Live Scribing session?

Visuals like these can be used in follow-up emails, on blogs, in social media, in presentations, and to pitch clients. They can serve as a good foundation for future visual marketing solutions, such as:

  • Content for social media posts
  • Infographic Design (we can help you with this)
  • Personalised presentations
  • and animations.
