Visual storytelling

Roger is an experienced graphic recorder and has worked at events in the UK, United Arab Emirates and Finland for clients including the NHS, Dubai Airport, Gorilla Films, Greenpeace and Finnair. Roger uses visual storytelling to capturing complex ideas in accessible drawings and his ability to capture likenesses of event participants is a unique selling point. Currently based in Auckland, and in possession of a work visa.

10 to 20 drawings like the ones below can be produced in one day, which will then be displayed in the space as the event progresses. When participants break for refreshments they look at the drawings and discuss them. The artwork can be taken away by the client for further uses if required.

Visual storytelling is a dynamic way of enlivening an ideation session as artwork produced throughout the course of the day stimulates discussion, captures concepts and inspires different ways of thinking.
