Dr. Franziska Schwarz: I experience the world with all its small and major moments by recording them in writing and drawing. What began with visual notes in the study of nutritional sciences, proved as a success tool in academic teaching and as a daily survival strategy in the information everyday life. As a graphic recorder I support others stuck in information overflow. I support them in capturing the essence, together with me. I filter and sort what is said in the shortest possible time before putting it in a new order on paper or tablet.
I create structure for others, map processes or record the highlights of an event in a linear fashion. Never knowing exactly what is going to be said during live events and having to divide up the space appropriately in addition to developing an overall picture is a challenge and fun factor at the same time. I translate abstract content into tangible visuals, often creating humorous scenes that make even the most complicated topic more charming and invite people to explore it. It is especially important to me to depict complex content, simplified but still correct. It is important to hit the appropriate level of abstraction.
Especially scientific, medical and technical subjects are my absolute favorites. Whether linear documentations, process visualizations or infographics I create the appropriate visual worlds for such topics.
