Drawing live illustrations of Satya Nadella’s keynote address at Microsoft Inspire 2017 is a pretty cool job. Even better is getting to design, illustrate, and animate a board game to communicate Inspire concepts to the audience in a quick, fun way.
The project started when Microsoft UK asked Yesler to engage partners at Inspire by riffing on the idea of a business board game. Our concept became the basis for between-speaker animations, and in just a few weeks our designer was ready for a day of live drawing. Microsoft UK and Inspire attendees were pleased with this memorable way of visually summarizing the presentations to help get everyone excited about new initiatives.
