One service we offer is drawing cartoons for events, live! This is often known as live scribing, visual meeting minutes or graphic recording.

Typically our cartoonist comes to your event, meeting or seminar, sits in the audience and draws cartoons during each of the talks. For longer talks (~30 mins) we can get a cartoon drawn up and out on social media by the end of the talk.

The aim of these cartoons is to highlight the content of the talk on social media. This helps you engage with a wider audience both during and after the event. A happy bonus is that we find the speakers are pretty excited to get a cartoon of their work.

The cartoons we produce are aimed typically at a non-expert but science literate audience and seek to explain, entertain and capture the event.

In the past we’re done this for short one day events (Figshare), longer 5-6 day conferences (EGU) and Twitter conferences (Royal Society of Chemistry). Some examples are below.

Pricing for this varies based on the specific structure of the event but we can always give plenty of options for every budget.
