Graphic Recording & Illustration | from Berlin

PIOTR PALUCHOWSKI is a professional Graphic Recorder and Illustrator from Berlin. Storytelling, illustration and visual solutions in general have always been a part of his life. As an artist and author he learned how to express complex topics in pictures and stories. In 2016 he discovered graphic recording, or scribing, as a method for live illustration during facilitation processes. That was so fascinating that it soon became a profession.

In moments when Piotr Paluchowski doesn't illustrate or develop new styles for storytelling and graphic recording, he works together with Magdalena Wiegner to give birth to a life-long art project.

Graphic Recording, or SCRIBING, is one of the pillars of GRAPHIC FACILITATION and stems from the will to capture discussions, talks and other spoken events, live and simultaneous to increase attention and memorability. Unlike illustration the focus is on the details and volatile emotions that otherwise would be lost. The topic builds a foundation that guides through the event, but the main priority is on the people, atmosphere and the moment in which creativity happens.

Pictures connect people. Just as the strokes come together to depict content, shadows and accents surface to narrate stories, that's just how people come together through conversation. Graphic recorders listen actively to guide and offer positive support. They bring openness, creativity and a lot of attention to master this task and add value to your event.

Illustrations for SenVital on their new management rules

ILLUSTRATIONS use pictures and storytelling to communicate content. Unlike language a picture doesnt read from left to right but rather is put together simultaneously. That is how pictures can create new emotions even through similar content. A single picture can bring together lots of thoughts and express them in an accessible and stimulating way.

Characters for use in graphic recordings and illustrations

ILLUSTRATORS collaborate with their CUSTOMERS to create pictures that communicate the desired content. Classically there are four stages in achieving this: the briefing, the sketch, the execution and the acceptance. The illustrator leads through every stage to create the picture step by step according to his or her style.

Every STYLE consists of own ideas and perspectives and the ability to communicate creative content. To find a matching style for an illustration is crucial because it is not only the drawing skill that determines the quality of the result but mostly an inspiring exchange and carefully formed ideas.
