Living Large

Last week, I had the pleasure of doing the graphic recording at the Jour Fixe – Medien und Entwicklung 2013, which took place in the Märchenhütte in Berlin. It was the first time I did a live visualization on large (100x200cm) cardboard panels, so I was quite excited, and keen to see the results.

I was also interested to see people’s reactions, but in the end I was too focused on what I was doing to look around much. However, the feedback I received afterwards was overwhelmingly positive.

I am pleased with the results, although I would have preferred the style to be a bit more consistent.

Media Landscape Variations

The Libyan Media Landscape is a project that has been keeping me busy for a long time. Now that it’s finally drawing to a close, I look back at the different iterations, and think about what a great learning experience it’s been. It started as a conversation between me and one of my coworkers who does research on the media in Libya. Then it evolved into a series of flipchart-sized images, some done in marker, others as collages. Later, the project was revived first as a hand-drawn 3D image, then as a series of black and white images. Finally, I had to go back to the drawing board, redo the whole thing in pencil and in ink, put it into photoshop, and fiddle around with it, until I got it right. Libyan Media Landscape variations

Back to basics

After the infographic about Libya’s media landscape had lain dormant for a while, I decided to start afresh, using only some recycling paper and a black marker. Nothing like radical simplification to clear your mind.

Mapping contraband

While the Mapping the Libyan Media Landscape project was on hold, I was asked to make a map of the flows of smuggled goods between Tunisia, Libya, and Egypt, and their neighboring countries, to be published in a print edition of I started with a series of icons, which I cut out of paper and placed on a large hand-drawn map. It was important to me to achieve a hand-made look, as most of the information was based on hearsay, and I didn’t want it to look too official.

Mapping Libya’s Media Landscape

In October 2012, one of my coworkers asked me to help her visualize her research findings about the post-revolutionary Libyan media landscape. During our discussions about the project, I felt like I was moving into graphic facilitation territory. Previously, I had done mostly sketchnotes and graphic recordings, so I was very excited.
