Tanya Gadsby is a Graphic Recorder with specialties in infographics and creative videos through her company, Drawing Out Ideas.
Where most would flock to modern, online graphic design, Tanya whips out the markers and pays attention to detail for her clients.
One of her masterpieces was seen at last week’s Spring into Startup event hosted by Pretio, Tutela Technologies, Referral SaaSquatch and Echosec. It was the perfect visual to show guests the startup activity happening in our city.
As a graphic recorder, Tanya helps strategic planners connect ideas and “see the big picture” in order to find solutions. This is done through live graphic recording during meetings or planning sessions. Her area of expertise is health care (She was a Project Analyst with VIHA for 5.5 years), and strategic planning / visioning with boards and executives.
Her whiteboard videos are another great tool for companies to get a point across. She’s always eager to chat about ideas for videos, but they’re so popular that they’re being booked 2 months in advance!
To Tanya, a successful meeting is one where graphic recording isn’t just an “add on” but a key component to the discussion and planning process. It’s not about creating a pretty piece of art, but rather synthesizing the discussion into key themes and making connections between ideas to achieve greater understanding.
