We were delighted to be invited to the fourth Women in Sport Conference North, which took place on the 16th March at BBC MediaCityUK in Salford. It was an amazing celebration for women in the sporting industry and we felt empowered listening to their stories.
Whilst there, we illustrated portraits of the panellists live. The illustrations were inspired by courtroom sketches, but with a dynamic twist. We used bright colours and swashes to add energy for this sporty event. Each illustration was completed within 10 minutes in order to keep up with the pace of the talks.
During the event, we shared photographs of our illustrations to the official @ConfSport Twitter feed with the conference's hashtag. This further promoted the event, even enabling the hashtag to trend! Below are a couple of our favourite tweets...
Interaction and collaboration is something we wholeheartedly love. We believe in the value of making guests, consumers, bloggers or VIPs feel special through live illustration, workshops and talks. Are you looking for an illustrator at your next event? We'd love to hear from you.
