Graphic Recording

Give events, conferences, and presentations a WOW factor with beautiful, dynamic graphic interpretations of your speakers’ messages.

Also known as live illustration, scribing, or visual communication, graphic recording keeps spoken material alive more effectively than those notes your audience scribbles down and then keeps meaning to review—and ultimately loses (No judgement! Been there!).

Graphic Facilitation

Never have another forgettable strategy session! Distill ideas, themes, and visual metaphors from a group meeting in real time using graphic facilitation.

A fun way to increase team participation and ensure that all voices are heard. Your team ends up with a living document that provides accountability as you move forward.

Alt text:

Optimized alt text contributes to a positive internet experience for people of all abilities and has become best practice for online visual content. Each of our finished images comes with custom alt text included so you never have to worry about what to write—just copy and paste!

Audio descriptions:

Your finished image also includes a pre-recorded audio summary for you to use. Key visual points are described via speech so that people who are visually impaired can understand the contents of the graphic.

Accommodating Multiple Learning Styles:

A visual communication method like live illustration combined with a spoken word presentation expands the ways people can relate to the material. Not everyone absorbs information effectively by listening, and a graphic recorder can support visual learners who might otherwise struggle to pay attention and absorb the material.

Championing Neurodiversity:

Dynamic visual interpretation opens doors for neurodiverse people to engage with your subject.

Embracing Inclusivity:

Representation matters. Graphics include people of different races, shapes, sizes, gender presentations, and physical abilities so that everyone feels included.

I am amazed at Ashton’s ability to illustrate understanding of deep concepts by gathering context from the speaker on the fly. She intently listens and formulates images that resonate with the audience. She truly has a gift, and I’m amazed by her! Her illustrations were the hit of our conference, and the digital images produced from those same paper drawings exceeded my expectations in quality. I can’t recommend her highly enough.

Ashton is a force of awesome energy. Her graphic recording is phenomenal and adds a deeper level of understanding to everyone watching the conference talks. Watching her work is spell binding and extremely captivating. Working with Ashton on the MacDevOps:YVR conference is always a beautiful experience. She is a joyful and amazing being and I want to thank her on behalf of our entire team for our success. MDO YVR is all the better for her participation in it. Hire her. You won’t regret it.

This past year was our first time using a graphic recorder for some of our educational sessions at our national conference. Ashton provided the creative approach we needed, taking the session content and making it visual and appealing. Our participants were impressed and shared their experience on Twitter with posters she created. Working with Ashton was truly enjoyable and I can’t wait to have the opportunity to work with her again!

I value the incredibly artful and expressive way in which you transformed our thoughts into visions. This is EXACTLY what I was hoping for and it reinforces my belief that ideas captured this way have their own power and energy that continues to resonate long after you have put the pen away.
