The full-colour Infomural can be found just right of the front doors of the museum. Created live over the course of the one-day event, it captures the cumulative vision of thousands of participants. During the festival, attendees where asked “What will transport in London look like in 2040?”. Participants shared visions of a greener, more connected and sustainable world – with the occasional hover car thrown in for good measure. These ideas are elaborated upon in the text surrounding the infomural within the museum.
The festival was a wonderful opportunity for us to work with the public as a whole. We can’t be happier to be included in the London Transport Museum!
The Shell Accelerator was a one-day event during the festival that accelerated thinking and team-building through collaborative workshops interspersed with engaging talks and pitches from keynote speaker. We sent James and Jordana over to capture the content from the Shell Accelerator through graphic recording.

The festival was part of an ongoing initiative to educate and involve the public in the design of TFL services. It presented TFL designs from the past and present and imagined how these designs might be reinvented for the future. Partnering with ARUP, we brought public projections of the future to life with graphic recording.
We asked the public carefully crafted questions about how transport might look in 2040 and as the answers came in, we got to work! Scribes Jordana and James captured the individual ideas in two tessellated grids, while Eddie distilled the information into one incredible Infomural.
It was an amazing day – working collaboratively with thousands of people is a rare opportunity and we relished it!
Plus, we woke up this morning to this surprise! Take a look at Eddie on the BBC today:

The reversal is indicative of the changing investment climate for Fintech, the fastest growing industry in the UK. Many start-ups are sceptical of Venture Capitalists and investors backed by large institutions. The nature of their business allows start-ups to get prototypes off the ground without huge investment backing. However, as the industry grows, working with a larger institution can offer its own rewards. Insight, managerial support and infrastructure are as useful to start-ups as money and VC’s are willing to offer expertise as well as capital.
As a highlight of London Tech Week, the talks made clear that banks and VCs are taking greater notice of Fintech. It’s a booming market with increased investment, at the forefront of innovation. As one of the UK’s strongest business prospects, we are sure to see Fintech start-ups grow quickly from their humble roots. We sent Jordana to scribe the output of the day through graphic recording.

Our scribes captured content throughout the day touching upon everything from street dancing to asylum seeking in the UK. They had the pleasure of speaking to some inspiring young people during the event breaks as well. If the passionate, informed attendees of this event are our future, we’re in good hands.

We were there to help with that output, providing live graphic recording. We sat in on CHANNEL 4’s “Stories About People” panel, with Jon Snow. Tech was at the forefront of these discussions – the panel debated the role tech plays in helping uncover stories and in their telling. It was interesting to see where traditional techniques in journalism have overlapped with technological invention, and how these overlaps have developed into innovative solutions.

The big question they posed was: “what is the purpose of business?” As with all good questions, there was no one answer but a multitude of interesting perspectives that needed capturing and connecting.
A panel of experts from different industries offered up their thoughts and we worked hard to capture the divergent and convergent threads.

Throughout two sessions we worked hard to capture fascinating content – talks on climate change, imagination, addiction, social media shaming, the darknet, millennial, quantum biology, and more! We also heard some beautiful music from Alice Phoebe Lou. Her delicately beautiful songs contained strong and inspiring political messages
TED was an absolute pleasure this year and very inspiring. We can’t wait to see what 2016 has to offer!

Since we weren’t using work walls for this event, we had a bit of fun with style, playing with blocks of colour and graphic shapes. Different surfaces call for different materials so a scribe needs the versatility to adapt!
