The Process
The Gallery

It is so clear
and makes the salient points come to life.

It was important to participants that Sara could work in both official languages.

Live Graphic Recording

Sara is a simultaneous translator, turning oral words into visuals/pictures, while the dialogue is progressing. As participants and/or presenters speak, Sara captures the nuggets in a visual format so that everyone can SEE what is being said.

Meetings, workshops and retreats benefit from the synthesization of concepts and being immersed in their own visual world. Live recording of keynotes, breakouts, panels, etc. enhances the WOW factor and added value at conference and events.

Themes from workshops throughout a day-long conference celebrating Person's Day in Canada, when women earned the right to vote, sit in parliament etc.

Recap and Summary Charts

More often than not, many charts are created during one gathering or there are concurrent breakout sessions whereby participants miss valuable information because they can only be in one session at a time. Sara synthesizes the main themes and undercurrents of the day(s) to create one large visual. This chart is often created in a public area during the event, so that participants become engaged in the progress of their work and can contribute to its content.

Studio and Custom Work

Visual support is created off-site, pre-, post or independent of an event, as a way to integrate graphics in the complete cycle of a short-term project, event or long-term initiative. Creation of a visual environment (ie agenda, journey map) for workshops, business meetings, events; large inter-active installations that inspire participants to be active co-creators; treatment of charts as visual reports, videos etc.; and stand-alone visuals for presentations, reports and events are only a few examples of the malleability and power of graphics in almost any domain.
