Delight and inspire your audience with visual notes

Visual notes are drawings created in real-time using simple words and pictures, virtually or in-person. Having a visual note-taker at your event means that while you’re talking, we’re drawing. The result is a visual summarizing the key takeaways of your discussion.

Visual notes are great for:
  • Engaging event & webinar attendees
  • Boosting meeting productivity
  • Aligning & focusing participants
  • Making your brand & content more memorable

 

Virtual Visual Notes

The key to show-stopping virtual meetings, conferences, and webinars.

Ink Factory’s artists aren’t limited to paper and markers.
We can also create visual notes digitally and stream them anywhere in the world–wherever your audience is.

Having a visual note-taker draw your virtual events will: 

  • Delight and excite your audience
  • Help you communicate your ideas clearly
  • Maximize participant engagement
  • Keep the momentum going after your event ends

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you need the presentation ahead of time?

It is helpful, but not necessary. Our artists are skilled in the art of active listening, synthesizing, and visualizing your content in real-time. Receiving a presentation ahead of time is helpful for your artist to understand complex jargon, acronyms, or statistics. Your dedicated Ink Factory project manager will be able to work with you to set your artist(s) up for success.

Is visual note-taking distracting to those in the room?

Visual notes are a super engaging tool because your content is being synthesized and visualized in real-time. We process visuals 60,000 times faster than text and we remember 80% of what we see but only 20% of what we hear. If anyone in the room is focused on our hand-drawn visuals, they are still connected with the content.

Do you teach workshops?

Yes! We're continually expanding our in-person and virtual workshops on visual thinking and note-taking. You can learn more about public and private group workshops here, and see what workshops are currently available here.

Would digital visual notes or analog visual notes be better for my event?

It depends on the look and feel you’re going for and the capabilities of your meeting space. With both options, your artist is drawing live and real-time.

Digital visual notes are great for events with big audiences because your AV team can project them large enough for everyone to experience. Final visuals also have the ability to be shared digitally almost instantly with your audience. Digital visual notes are also useful for smaller brainstorming sessions with a lot of ideation and evolving thoughts, or for events where you’ll want your artist to be more mobile between groups or rooms.

Analog visual notes are ideal when you want a more tangible experience–nothing beats seeing one of our artists draw what your audience is hearing, or interacting with the final display of artist boards after the sessions. Analog visual notes work best at the front near the speaker(s) so participants can see what’s being drawn, and are perfect for strategy sessions, brainstorming, and any other event where attendees can learn, react and build upon ideas. Our team will work with you to select the best option for your event. Sometimes, it’s both!

you talk. we draw. it’s awesome.
