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.

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!

Interactive Graphic Recording: Engaging People at Conferences

Graphic recording delivers the most value when we incorporate an interactive component for participants in your conference. Rather than just being a “pretty picture,” interactive graphic recording becomes something the group directly contributes to and builds. It makes a tremendous difference in people feeling ownership for the graphics, and the graphic recording will be more authentic and capture everyone’s voice. Interactive graphic recording can be as simple as providing an opportunity for people to add their ideas on sticky notes, to more fulsome engagement through group builds and three dimensional displays!
