“Working with Urban Wild Studio was incredibly wonderful and easy! Leah and Jill made the process so easy. You don’t need to know exactly what you want. Instead, they walk you through the process, ask questions and help you define the scope of work. We also gave them a very tight turnaround and they were just phenomenal about it. You can’t go wrong with Urban Wild Studio.”

“Our first experience with graphic recording was very, very positive. Leah worked with us in advance to ensure our meeting format would work in concert with the artist. During the meeting, Caroline was attentive throughout and captured a spectrum of thoughts creatively and beautifully.
The murals [Caroline] created are visually attractive, and also capture key concepts in cleverly connected fashion for a product that will be easy to share and draw upon for follow up work. Her posters were viewed by many conventioneers who did not attend the sessions and those people who did experience her work during the meeting were impressed and interacted with her throughout the sessions.”
–Carol R, Society of American Foresters and Dave W, TN Department of Agriculture

The boards were a talking piece during breaks, reference points for the days after and the digital copies will be of great value communicating the outcome of the Summit to the larger team.

We will be recommending Urban Wild Studio to other departments within our company."
