Flip Chart Note Taking: Tips for Non Graphic Recorders

 

When a meeting has multiple breakout groups, flip chart note taking can enhance and guide group discussions. During a breakout group discussion, one person is usually assigned as the “recorder,” and he or she rarely has a graphic recording background… so the notes might be illegible, scattered, or too lengthy. The basic fundamentals of graphic recording can enhance flip chart note taking or the use of large visual templates when facilitating discussions. Whether you’re a facilitator wanting to improve your flip charting, a volunteer scribe, or a sketchnoter… you don’t have to be an artist to take effective notes!

Fuselight Creative Team: Interview with Tanya Gadsby

Tanya Gadsby is founder of Fuselight Creative (previously named “Drawing Out Ideas”), and has been graphic recording and animating since 2010. Born in New Zealand (and part Māori!), Tanya grew up in Canada’s far north in Iqaluit, Nunavut, and Whitehorse, Yukon.  Project manager Leslie Teixeira had a conversation with Tanya to find out more about how she got into graphic recording and why her theatre background is an excellent foundation for this work….

Digital Graphic Recording: Benefits and Considerations

We’re getting more requests for digital graphic recording, and it’s quickly becoming a preferred format for some of our clients. Digital graphic recording is flexible, offers unique engagement opportunities, and helps inform breakout group discussions. However, it’s important to consider the benefits and considerations of this format to determine what will work best for your conference!

Leslie Teixeira is our project manager extraordinaire! She joined the Fuselight team in 2015 to set up our smooth system of operations for animations, graphic recording, and infographics. But we hired her primarily for her personality — she’s eager to solve problems, friendly and professional, and stays on top of all our projects! Outside the office, she’s passionate about baseball and can be found at the ball diamond most evenings. Find out more about her background and what inspires her about our work…

Whiteboard Animation: Say it in 2 Minutes… or less!

Having produced whiteboard animations since 2010 (and stop motion animations since 2014), we’ve seen every type of project come our way. Organizations ask us to produce whiteboard videos to explain a new strategy to employees, a complex chronic disease to the public, to promote a product or service…. and everything in between!

 

Every whiteboard animation project is different – but each one faces the same challenge: “we’ve got so much to say! How do we fit it all into a short video?”
