Graphic Recording

Graphic Recording is problem solving and making connections.

We listen closely, synthesize, and draw in real-time. Ideas emerge in front of you. Graphic recording helps people remember and care about the ideas. It supports interaction, reflection, and seeing the next steps.

Drawing Change has worked with researchers in nine countries, and with from non-profits to CEOs. Team members can work in the US/Canada, and bilingually in English and French.

It’s not just about the pictures – it’s what you do with them. You keep digital images and original posters. Complex information is easy to understand. The images are usually 4 by 8 feet for impact.

  • Strategic planning, workshops, public engagement
  • Conferences and group work
  • Patient journey mapping
  • Print, post, and share online

Make your event unforgettable.

Knowledge translation is about making connections. We connect with researchers, policy writers, academics and innovators so ideas can spread. 

We specialize in reading documents and translating them into custom images. Our key approach is collaboration.
