Graphic Recording for Sigmar Gabriel and Peter Eigen

Graphic Recording | Visual Scribing

The Thought

The German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) was hosting a public format, called “Denkräume” (thinking spaces) where the minister at the time, Sigmar Gabriel was talking to Peter Eigen, founder of Transparency International, the global coalition against corruption. They asked me to accompany the conversation by visually recording it.

The Shape

I created visuals for the invitation for the event, drew on my digital tablet during the event and provided the team with a visual summary after the event to send out to all who participated.
I will say, that the setup during the event was not ideal. My live drawing was projected onto a screen next to Sigmar Gabriel and Peter Eigen during their conversation. I think this is distracting and I actually recommend less dominant setups for graphic recording activities during events.

Fun Fact

Our dear friend Andreas was taking care of Alma (seven months at the time) in a back room of the ministry building while I was drawing, and no, she didn’t fall out of the window ;) Thank you Andreas!
