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!).

Since launching as Drawing Out Ideas in 2010, we’ve graphic recorded at conferences of 10,000+ people, at small community workshops, and everything in between across North America and internationally. Our animations have been seen in theatres across Canada, on television, and as part of educational campaigns for various organizations.

Over the years, the team has grown to include Leslie Teixeira, our fabulous project manager, and Minh Ngo, a skilled graphic recorder, animator, and infographic artist. We’ll also be adding a third artist to the team later in 2018.

Whew! With all this great work under our belt, we feel it’s time to reposition ourselves.

Where does our name come from?

Tanya Gadsby, founder of The Fuselight Creative, grew up in the Yukon. Every New Year’s Eve, her family would have a massive backyard bonfire, even if it was –30! From a tiny strike of a match, a little “fuselight” would grow into a towering fire. Tanya was always inspired by how such a tiny flicker could transform a cold night into warmth and light, ushering in a New Year full of energy.

Here at The Fuselight Creative, we aim to do the same. We want to ignite the fuse of passion, innovation, and inspiration at your next meeting through our full suite of visual services. Although our name has changed, our visual suite of services and commitment to our clients remains the same. Let’s ignite your ideas in ink!
