Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have an artist that's specialized in my industry?

All of our artists have a passion for different industries or topics. However, all our artists are expertly trained to listen and filter what’s being said in the moment– regardless of the content being discussed.

Do you have an artist in my area?

Our core team is based in Chicago, but we have an extended pro network in almost every region–and we can also support your event virtually!

Can you match our company branding?

Yes, whether we’re creating live visual notes, illustrations, or videos, we work with you to align with your brand. Keep in mind that we’re an illustration company, not a graphic design firm, so we create work that is hand-drawn. While we can match your tone and colors, the work on our website is a good representation of what we can create for you.

What’s the difference between visual notes and illustrations?

Visual notes are based on live content and created during a speech, presentation, meeting, etc. Visual Notes aid in memory retention and recall long after the meeting or event ends.

Illustrations are intended to communicate to a broader (or more specific) audience as a stand-alone visual tool for viewers to navigate and learn. Our illustrations are based on carefully curated content iterated and visualized using multiple review cycles.
