I’m Emma Paxton and I am a Graphic Recorder and Illustrator. I create visual notes of your meeting in real-time and images to help communicate complex ideas.
I have been self employed since 2010 after a career in event management spanning 20 years and 1000’s of b2b learning events designed and delivered for Business Link. During that time I also developed my facilitation skills, using Pinboard Meeting techniques to facilitate team away days, stakeholder consultation, planning sessions and more.
I launched Pinboard Meetings in 2011 to focus on meeting design and conference facilitation and but as my artistic services and skills blossomed it was clear that a new image was required so Imagistic was created in 2016.
Now I focus on creating hand drawn visuals that engage minds, explain ideas and embed learning, I draw live at events to capture the key ideas and outcomes, and create event branding, materials and ‘visual widgets’. I create hand-drawn infographics or rich pictures to communicate complex ideas and information. Plus I design and draw posters, planners, postcards and more!
