Levels of Graphic Recording: What’s Best for Your Conference?

You’re thinking about hiring a graphic recorder for your organization’s upcoming conference, retreat, or workshop. But it’s important to understand there are different levels of graphic recording, and each has a different impact on your audience.

Before finding the right graphic recorder for your conference, it’s important to consider the level of graphic recording you need. Do you want an eye-catching “wow” for conference attendees? Do you want to engage attendees on a deeper level? Can the graphics help guide strategy and difficult conversations?

There is no “right” level of graphic recording – each serves a different and valuable purpose! Below is an animated infographic describing the different levels of graphic recording:

Different Styles of Graphic Recording: Aligning to Your Organization

Styles of graphic recording vary between graphic recorders – some of us are highly visual, integrating lots of characters and images. Others are more text-based, utilizing structured bullet points, boxes, and fonts. And of course there is a spectrum of styles of graphic recording in between.

Likewise, every organization has a different “language” when it comes to articulating ideas, representing themselves, or understanding a concept. A financial investment firm talks about concepts and ideas differently compared to a community arts non-profit.

Break the “4th Wall” of Webinars

Not another webinar! (at least I can check Facebook on the side)

For teams that meet regularly via webinar, the cold virtual environment can be a motivation killer.

Webinars are a valuable tool in connecting remote teams, and certainly cut time and travel costs; however, in order to be effective, a webinar needs to make the best use of the team’s time and keep everyone on the line engaged and away from their emails. Not an easy thing to do when most webinars are hosted by a dull Power Point slide deck!

MEOPAR Ocean Acidification Conference

As a graphic recorder I get to “drop into” numerous conferences and strategic planning sessions happening both in BC and other provinces.  I also get a bird’s eye view on a variety of industries — from issues big organizations are struggling with, to very complex scientific discussions, to mapping patient journeys in health care.

In February, the Marine Environmental Observation Prediction and Response network hosted an international conference to discuss the current research on ocean acidification, and I graphic recorded the information rich panel discussions. (I can now say I’m an amateur expert in ocean acidification!)
