Graphic Recording and Graphic Facilitation

Graphic recorders listen closely, synthesize and draw your dialogue in real-time – online or in person. When you need participants to see patterns, explore ideas, and for the collective wisdom of a group to emerge – our visuals can help you visualize impactful systems change.

Strategic Illustrations

Need knowledge translation, a visual strategic plan, curriculum illustrations or a new model? We transform ideas from dense documents and make it beautifully useful. We create the kinds of illustrations you can’t make with powerpoint – ranging from conceptual models to more data-driven layouts to curriculum for the WHO.  Sam has a special knack for co-creating abstract diagrams and models – the kind that facilitate further conversation and learning.

I have worked with Sam Bradd for several years now in a professional capacity and the images he has created are unique and reflect a high level of critical analysis. Sam is able to take complex, even controversial topics and create detailed and meaningful graphic recordings. Recently Sam also worked with me to create images to present my doctoral comprehensive oral examinations and they were superb!
