Digital visualization and digital meetings and events have gone from being a necessary evil to now being the preferred standard of many companies. Around the world, the pandemic has set in motion enormous changes – both in our personal lives, but also at work.
For many people, the last few months have been intense, and most companies are still in the process of adapting, but one thing is for sure: digitalisation is here to stay. For most global companies it’s just faster and easier to think digitally – and it saves employees the hassle of transportation and the ability to work from home, when events are streamed live and can be accessed digitally.
The setuppet is simple
And the setup for when we draw live (or do remote digital visualization) is actually quite simple. Most companies stream their events live now anyway. And that ‘live feed’ is sent out in advance to all participants. We receive that feed and can watch and listen just like all your other participants.
Just for the record live streaming is when a streamed video is sent over the Internet in real time, without first being recorded and stored. Today, TV broadcasts, video game streams, and social media video can all be live-streamed.
That way, we can easily see what is being shared, presented and talked about at the meeting or event. And we can capture this in drawings. At the same time, we can share our screens during the day, and in this way the progress in the visualization is shown continuously.
What are the benefits of a digital visualization?
There are infinite benefits to having your visualization ‘born’ and thought digitally right from the start. This means that you can skip a few steps on the way to your visualization coming out to your recipients. At the same time, you may be able to save a little on the budget because there is no need for re-inking, coloring, re-touching or scanning.
- It is simple to do corrections or additions to your visualization.
- Your visualization can be easily shared on mail, web, SOME, intra, etc.
- The dimensions of the visualization are subsequently without limitation (you can have your visualization as big as a football field or as small as a stamp) because we draw in vector format.
- You can have your visualization printed on all conceivable surfaces and fabrics
- The colors stay nice and crisp (even in 5 years), whereas color pigment on paper fades over time.
- You can easily ‘reuse’ elements from your visualization to e.g. PowerPoint presentations, movies or the likes.
- You can still do a timelapse of the drawing process. Note, however, that it requires a different budget and takes longer.
- You save costs on transportation and renting a graphic wall.
- It’s not very comfortable to look at a screen sharing with live drawing, because the illustrator works very fast – and zooms in and out a lot. Therefore, we recommend that you agree on when the screen will be shared, in small intervals of a few minutes during the day.
What’s the pricing of a digital visualization?
A digital visualization costs the same as an analog live drawing. So you book us for half or full day, whether it is analog live or online. At the same time, we recommend that if it is a large event with a lot of content, then a ‘visual facilitator’ must also be included.
An Illustrator costs DKK 10,000 (+ VAT) for half a day – and DKK 18,000 (+ VAT) for a whole day.
At Levende Streg we draw on Wacom Cintiq Pros, which are large touch-sensitive drawing boards or screens. Maria’s favorite is the 32-inch Wacom Cintiq. Marie likes the 24 inch screen of the same type best. We use Macs and a sea of tech stuff that makes our job easier.
