Graphic recording is the art of illustrating salient points of a discussion in real time to help people see what's being said and make connections. Graphic recording can be done in person, on large sheets of paper, or virtually. In a virtual setting, we can live-stream the illustration or share periodic updates on the image as your meeting unfolds.
Set-up and breakdown for in-person engagements can take 90 minutes or more depending on the complexity of the event. As such, in-person engagements are billed by half-day (3 hours or less, plus set-up and breakdown time) or whole-day (anything over 3 hours, plus set-up and breakdown time).
We charge by the hour with a $500 minimum.
You send us a video recording of your meeting or conversation and we create illustrations just as if we were doing a live graphic recording.
This add-on is available for virtual and asynchronous graphic recording.
Whether meeting in person, virtually, or in a hybrid format, we design and facilitate collaborative processes to foster creativity across systems.
We also charge for planning time.
We create illustrations to illustrate complex ideas as well as worksheets, workbooks, reports, flipbooks, and maps to enhance knowledge sharing. This is most often done in tandem with our role as graphic facilitators in retreats and conferences. Most illustration work will have some restrictions with regard to retail distribution and commercial purposes. Unlimited usage rights are subject to additional fees.
This page is provided for informational purposes. Any project's price and final cost will vary depending on the planning time, scope, and duration. We charge 1/2 time for travel. We'd happily discuss your project and give you a more accurate quote.
Our clients include a wide range of public and private philanthropic groups, capacity-building firms, social change collaboratives, community engagement initiatives, universities, and government agencies. We also work with event production firms and marketing/PR agencies.

Several of us are based in Philadelphia, PA, but we are increasingly national and international as a team. We do most in-person work across PA, NJ, NY, and Baltimore/Washington, D.C., but we also travel to other parts of the country and world.
We all speak English fluently, and we have several members of the team who are fluent and/or proficient in Spanish.
Please drop us a line if you are curious about having us come to your next gathering.
Yes! But we typically stick to illustrations designed to help people plan or to educate people.
We also work with animators to get your illustrations moving!
