Graphic Recording


We listen closely, synthesize, and draw in real-time. Ideas emerge in front of you. Graphic recording helps people remember and care about 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 overseas, and bilingually in English and French.

Visual Facilitation

MEETING facilitation

Drawing Change can facilitate your meeting, or partner with your facilitator. 

With 20 years of facilitation experience, Sam will collaborate with you to help bring out your best thinking.

We believe that meetings can leave us more whole than when we start – it’s not a race across the finish line. Using visuals and principles of the Art of Hosting, participatory decision making, anti-racism, and cultural safety, the team at Drawing Change wants to support you in doing your best work. We’ll use the right visual tools for your needs.

Facilitation examples: strategic planning, journey mapping, visioning, any meeting that matters. 


Telling your story with data and images. 

We create stunning visual strategic plans and infographics, no matter where you are located.

We specialize in complex, abstract ideas, including:

  • Visual strategic plans
  • Curriculum
  • Journey/services maps
  • Illustrations 
  • Diagrams

Recent illustrations include an upstream wellness model, internal human resources diagrams, anti-racism curriculum, an aquaponic prototype, and a low-carbon neighbourhood.


Knowledge Translation

Complex information becomes accessible.

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.

Examples include award-winning academic poster presentations, fully illustrated reports, curriculum, and more. Graphic designer Snow Dowd is available to create beautiful report layouts as well.
