What is Graphic Recording?

Graphic Recording is a visual tool that captures key points of a discussion, presentation or workshop through text and illustrations, drawn live in front of your audience. This is an impactful visual synthesis of your content for increased accessibility, retention of the information presented and to keep your audiences engaged.


Sarah provides graphic recording live at an event on paper, a whiteboard or tablet, either alongside the presenter, or collaboratively in a facilitated workshop. She also can develop graphic recording content for pre or post-events to aid presentations or to develop further resources. This content can be used in publications, posters, reports, slideshow presentations, videos and social media. 

Drawing on her community development experience, Master of International and Community Development, Bachelor of Performing Arts and visual arts practice, Sarah is an active listener, innovative designer, and a confident visual communicator. She blends creativity and consultancy to help capture your message in a memorable format.
