Drawnalism has been enabling people to benefit from their ability to capture the key moments of events and conversations since 2009.

Our first very first job was to characterise social media on a VERY LARGE WALL at an unconference in a disused factory.

Matt says:

So, as you can see, we’ve found ourselves in a great variety of workplaces from the first moment we started life!

Alex says:

But luckily, as you can see in the next picture, we have always had someone to help us along!

In the past decade, we have travelled widely taking Drawnalism to an enormous range of organisations and businesses in the private and public spheres both in the UK and throughout the world.

We’ve worked at multi day corporate and institutional conferences, for very practical one day business workshops, in private and public seminars for speeches and prestigious keynote addresses and for small project focused meetings for long term programmes for change.


Stops along the way in our journey since the VERY (first) big factory wall have included: The European Commission, Investec, McKinsey and Company, Médecins Sans Frontières, News UK and many, many more.

We have developed our At the Studio, and Video offers that can be used to tell memorable stories the people we work with and nowadays we also like to try and help save the planet we have travelled around by drawing your event from distance with On the Air.
