Want to communicate a lot of information?

Maybe at a meeting with your team or at an event?

Using live illustrations, you can easily create clarity about what is important
and show clear connections on how information is linked.
Visualizing also helps in remembering information more easily.

The live drawing session was very good

We had 2 videos and a live drawing session. The drawing session was also very good; the summary of B&S summarized the essence of the day perfectly. We’re very happy! Many thanks!


The illustrations turned out super nice

The communication with Bord en Stift was pleasant. First an order through the website, then a call with Bord&Stift, then with the illustrator. The illustrations turned out super nice. I’m very happy!


B&S listens to your wishes


It is very nice that B&S offers a lot of freedom with your choices and listens to your wishes. It’s also nice that B&S communicates often and quickly about progress and planning.


Very creative club


Very nice to see how a story comes to life! Very creative club.

A live illustrator is a fast-drawing artist, able to capture information in images very quickly. A live illustrator is also a kind of note-taker 2.0. Instead of summarizing what’s discussed during a conference or event, we summarize it in images. This makes ideas immediately clear and accessible to everyone at a glance.

A live illustrator adds a lot of value at events which are unusual or not a weekly occurrence. So if you’re organizing a brainstorm or a day of team reflection then having a live illustrator is a great idea.

It’s also fun at conferences or events. While a speaker is speaking, the illustrator makes a drawing to summarize what’s being said. For everyone present, it’s a nice way to see the main points of the speech. An illustrator can also make an overview of the whole day, bringing together the events of the conference.

Have a look first at which illustrator suits you best. Then you can use the ‘Book’ button to hire the relevant illustrator. We quickly check if they’re available and let you know. If so, you can make the booking final! The illustrator will contact you to discuss in advance what you want so they can prepare visually for you.

The illustrator can bring their own materials, or you can arrange this. There are various possibilities: the illustrator can make a summary on one large canvas, or make lots of separate drawings on small sheets. Depending on what you want and what suits you, we’ll try to arrange it!

Live illustrating offers us a different challenge from making films. When you’re making a film you always have time to think about things, but with live illustrating you have to react quickly and instantly transform something into an image. We believe we can really add value this way: to show things more clearly, give an overview during a conference of event and add some much need fun and playfulness!
