Brand Experience and Live Illustration
Hello. I’m Katie, and I specialise in live illustration.
I help PR agencies and global brands with experiential marketing by drawing live at events.
Dreaming up new designs and live illustration layouts is my favourite thing to do. Helping global brands communicate clearly. SWOON. I love it.
I help educators and academics record their ideas with graphic recording at workshops and meetings.
I’ve been scribing for top institutions for meetings and workshops since graduating with an MA in illustration from Edinburgh College of Art.
My super powers = creating fast, dynamic illustrations that boost engagement, stimulate effective learning, and are easily shared.
I’m all about using my illustrative powers for good. Ethical, environmental projects YES PLEASE.
Live Window Illustration / Installation Painting for Dove
In March 2019 I was commissioned to create a live window painting at the 12th Knot in London, visualising Dove’s sustainability/recycling commitments.
Not all of the attendees’ first language was English, so visualising the commitments was essential.
Live Portrait Painting in-store - House of Fraser
Some examples from live illustrating for House of Fraser, Gateshead at a Mothers' Day promotional event, as part of the talented team at LiL (Live Illustration London):
Product customisation - Stella Artois
In 2018 I was drew for Stella Artois in Newcastle upon Tyne, Gloucester, Cheltenham, Bristol and at Ascot Races.
I personalised each chalice in around 5 minutes or less. This included a hand-lettered name and/or message, as well as a small skyline or landmark illustration. (See images below). In 9 hours at Ascot races I personalised over 100 chalices.
Live Illustrating for Brands
Useful facts and Live Illustration Services Available:
Product personalisation takes around 5 minutes per item. Designs are created and approved before the event.
Window painting: I create the design, you sign it off, I turn up and paint it. You’ll be amazed at how much I can get done in one day of illustrating on windows! Please do get in touch with any questions and I can give a better estimate of timescale and costs.
(All paints = non-toxic and environmentally friendly.)

What is Graphic Recording?
If you are organising an educational event, a workshop, or any event where you would like participants’ ideas recorded then graphic recording is for you.
I, the scribe, can go around and draw while I capture valuable information.
You can read more about graphic recording, and why it is very useful here.
It’s fabulous for engaging workshop participants, enthusing students, and making an impact at corporate events.
