of your story

We speak with words, think with pictures and learn with stories. Smartup Visuals translates words into pictures that tell the story of your organisation, and help your audience learn about it. We use creativity and style to produce visual content and transform how businesses communicate.


Our team are specialists in graphic facilitation (or scribing), mural design, animation, and illustration. We combine digital and hand drawn graphics, as well as video and photography to redesign workspaces, perform live scribing at events and deliver beautiful content for your website and marketing campaign.

Based in London, we often jump on flights to meet our international clients.

SV did a fantastic job of capturing a very complex and dry policy discussion on innovation in social services at the World Social Security Forum in Panama (Nov '16) and brought it to life through their visual stories. Beyond the need to capture the gist or the most noteworthy points on a topic quite alien to them, they produced a captivating visual for people to reflect on.

The team at Smartup Visuals really captured the imagination of delegates at Base London 2013. Before their eyes they illustrated all the things they said they would do to build a better London. As design engineers we were delighted to be associated with the graphic – gives us food for thought!
