Graphic recording is process of note-taking with illustration. I synthesize information being verbalized into colorful drawings and hand lettering, intriguing viewers the day of the event. The end result is a large scale illustration, a resource for revisiting the content of an event long after its over. Think of it as a journey, a kind of visual storytelling.
My services have been requested to keep attendees engaged, entertained, awake — and off their phones! Graphic recording is an excellent service for corporate retreats, conferences, brainstorming sessions, team-building exercises, design thinking strategy, hackathons, educational purposes and more. Digital illustrations (for a separate fee) can be produced after the event. My style is known for being comprehensive and layered, allowing viewers to delve deeply into each illustration through different paths.
I have been graphic recording for over 7 years and am based in southeast Michigan (working primarily in Ann Arbor and Detroit), but am available for graphic recording worldwide. Rates vary for projects involving travel. Please contact me to discuss your vision and needs at yenazzaro(@)gmail.com

My hourly fee is $150 with a 3-hour minimum, plus travel mileage when applicable. Multi-day and travel rates are available for your unique circumstance. Please call for a quote.
We start with a phone consultation to discuss duration, logistics and topics for your event. An overview of the day is helpful, but not necessary for preparation. Once the details are agreed upon, I will send a contract to sign and return to secure your date.
I will arrive at least 30 minutes earlier than the start time to set up the space. You are welcome to keep the paper drawings at the end of the event and scan, frame, or manipulate them for future use.
• $25 materials fee, $35 for custom palette • Roll paper illustrations are yours to keep
I offer consulting in mind mapping (the organization of ideas and action) and teach graphic recording. I can also lead workshops using graphic facilitation, the process of streamlining your work flow while illustrating. Either or both make a great retreat for team building, problem solving and learning a creative skill. Please contact me for a customized lesson plan to fit your needs.
