As one of Australia’s leading Graphic Recorders, Melbourne-based Jessamy Gee has developed a unique skill set in listening, synthesising, capturing and communicating information visually. She is the Founder and Director of Think in Colour, Founder and President of Graphic Recorders Australia, author of 'GR's Best Mate' and co-author of 'The World of Visual Practice'. In 2020, Jessamy became the first Australian Director to serve on the Board of the International Forum of Visual Practitioners (IFVP). Since launching Think in Colour in 2011, Jessamy has become internationally renowned for her work, and has serviced a diverse range of clients all around Australia, New Zealand, Asia and Europe across the corporate, community, education and government sectors. Jessamy has captured talks by some of Australia’s leading minds including former President of the Human Rights Commission Gillian Triggs, former Greens leader Bob Brown, advertising personality Todd Sampson, actor Madga Szubanski, academic and presenter Waleed Aly, Chief Scientist Dr Alan Finkel and former Victoria Police Chief Commissioner Christine Nixon, as well as revered international thinkers such as futurist and inventor Ray Kurzweil, and originator of lateral thinking, Edward de Bono. In 2019, Jessamy was invited to Strasbourg by the Council of Europe to graphically record their annual Octopus Conference on Cybercrime - an international event hosting close to 500 delegates from around the world, translated in three languages - showcasing Graphic Recording on the world stage.
“Jessamy does with colorful markers what Yo-Yo Ma does with a cello and Julia Childs did with butter. Jessamy listened to the words and felt the tone. Then she imagined each service point in color, and drew. In the same time it took to speak (90 minutes), Jessamy produced three beautiful infographics capturing each Key Learning Point in my presentation. How she managed to get every point so clearly still amazes me today.” Ron Kaufman, NY Times Best Selling Author and Speaker
