Virtual scribing and remote facilitation

Virtual Graphic Recording – Harnessing the potential of illustration

As experienced graphic recorders, we’ve spent years travelling the globe illustrating business events in person, live. But there’s another way, a new way, and our clients love it.

We provide live digital graphic recording of meetings and events. Put simply, we plug into your meeting or event remotely, and we visualise everything as it happens.

Virtual Scribing

Digitally visualising virtual meetings.

We have been using iPads to digitally scribe events for years. We have found them a great way to draw live, plug into AV systems and wow audiences. Now, virtual meetings and video conferences are more popular than ever, and we've been working hard to integrate what we do into this thrilling new virtual space.

How it works

Whatever your tech is... we can help

We typically use Zoom but also Teams, Webex & Hangouts to live illustrate meetings. We join as a participant and apply the same deep listening and visual skills that we would if we were in the same room. We create visuals of the discussion, and because they're drawn live via screen share we can integrated real-time output into the meeting at key moments.

The Live Illustration Virtual Meeting Manifesto

Businesses across the globe are working remotely. Our friends at EventMB have many cool suggestions to help you, and we’ve shamelessly stolen their ideas for our Live Illustration Virtual Meeting Manifesto.

  2. Established Rules of Engagement means everyone knows how to act throughout the meeting
  3. A meeting facilitator structures the event into 30 minute chunks with breaks
  4. It's good to level the playing field through wise use of the mute button
  5. It helps to assign additional roles like Timekeeper, Note Taker, Tech Support, and Conversation Assistant
  6. It is essential to sort out technical issues before they happen
  7. We insist on eye contact. Look at the camera!
  8. How about a Virtual Icebreaker? There are so many to choose from…
