Graphic recording uses hand-drawn images, words and color to help people see what they talk about. From presentations to strategic planning, visuals are increasingly seen as a valuable part of presenting and gathering information.
I'm Amy Sparks. I learned about the value of using visuals with groups a few years ago. A friend told me about the field of visual facilitation and graphic recording and I was hooked.
I've worked in a variety of settings - with corporations that want to increase learning by incorporating graphic recording; with community groups wanting to document important conversations; and with nonprofits wanting to demonstrate their work visually. Working together, we generate a piece that helps clarify a conversation, simplify a work plan, or tell a story. It's a productive way to work (and fun too!).
