Case Study: Calgary Stampede Graphic Recording

 

A case study explores the details behind what went into a project, the challenges, approach, results, and what could be improved for next time. The live illustration we created at the Calgary Stampede is a good example of how to use interactive graphic recording at a large scale event. This case study gives a behind-the-scenes look at our planning, design process, and how the graphic recording had a lasting impact at the event.

 

The Calgary Stampede is one of the world’s largest rodeos and attracts upwards of 1.2 million people during the course of ten days in July. But it’s not only about the rodeo! There are exhibits on all aspects of agriculture – from chickens to growing veggies to sheering sheep. Many of the attendees are tourists from around the world, some of whom have little knowledge about agriculture in Canada.

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!

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.
