New Name: Fuselight Creative

We’re so excited to announce that we have transitioned to a new name: The Fuselight Creative

We’ve outgrown the “Drawing Out Ideas” name. It doesn’t fully convey the mission we have for our work, nor is it very unique in our industry. Many graphic recording companies use the words “drawing,” “ideas,” and related words (ink, visual, image, lines, think…. you get the idea!).

Graphic recordings are already an engaging visual record of your meeting, but it’s important they are displayed throughout the year to keep the content top-of-mind and ensure long-term commitment to the action items.

The Fastest Way to Kill Good Design

There’s a common refrain in the design community that every designer hopes to never hear from their client: “can you make it pop?”

Why is this so deadly? It’s vague and imprecise; nor is it clear whether the critique is based on how it will impact the audience and their interpretation of the design.

But there’s a bigger problem lurking behind those five words: Can you make it pop? And it comes down to how the client and designer are collaborating.

I’ve worked with numerous clients over the years from a variety of organizations and I’ve realized there are two approaches to working with a visual designer, whether it’s producing an animated video, an infographic, logo design, or even graphic recording. Sean McCabe, a fellow designer, put it in these terms:
