Tanya Gadsby is Creative Director of Fuselight, a creative agency offering a suite of visual services.
Fuselight are visual strategists – this means we don’t just “show up and draw” your meeting. Our mission is "igniting ideas" and this is only possible through taking the time to understand your topics, audience, and organization to customize our approach and really engage people at your event. For example:
- Customizing our illustration style to match your organization or culture;
- Facilitating dialogue through interactive visuals like Knowledge Walls, visual templates, or augmented reality;
- Real-time mapping of complex journeys through a system;
- Integrating Indigenous language on the graphics
- Virtual graphic recording or digital graphic recording on super wide screens
- Developing unique post-meeting takeaways like interactive PDFs of the graphics, animated gifs, or videos
Fuselight also offers a wide range of animations -- from simple but delightful whiteboard videos, to stop motion animation, to 2D graphics and motion graphics. Fuselight's animations have been broadcast on Canadian television and as informational health segments in Canadian theatres.
Tanya's area of expertise is health care, as her prior career was in mental health and addictions, community engagement, and health system improvement.
