SAE International

SAE International is an association for engineering professionals. They’re leaders in connecting and educating engineers while promoting, developing, and advancing aerospace, commercial vehicle, and automotive engineering.

SAE’s team was looking for new ways to engage participants when their events switched to the online world. Visual notes were the perfect solution to bring attention back to their speakers, and also removed the additional work of creating presentation slides.

Their team wanted to keep a 60-minute conversation engaging for the entire time, and visual notes helped them do just that.

“The artist provided movement on the screen that helped attendees stay focused on the conversation while aiding presenters to visually follow the conversation as well.”

Marcie Hineman, Strategic Marketing Manager


After the event SAE’s team used the visual notes for digital content, posting the images on social media, in a post-event email, and on a webpage for download. They also sent prints of the final visuals to the speakers as thank you gifts. You can view the full virtual event with the virtual visual notes featured on SAE’s Youtube Channel.
