The Big Paper Strategy is this:
Listen to and refine event conversation,
illustrate a clear and holistic view of an event
- and make it memorable.
Big Paper Strategy's live illustration service brings color, holistic understanding, and visual energy to an event.
Conferences, corporate meetings, and community roundtables all benefit from the visual addition to any discussion.
A visual thinker with a background in business, technology, and design, Matt's big paper drawings provide a backdrop for the facilitation of lively group conversation, strategy, clarity, and vision casting.

Big Paper Benefits
Holy wow I love this Matt Orley!
You provided great value to IPEC 2022. The proof of that is the apparent new business you may have picked up as a result of your work on-site! There’s no better testimonial to your value than having our attendees booking you for their future events!
Moreover, I know we all agree that your style – low-maintenance, self-reliant, easy-going, always professional – is doubly appreciated. You meshed really well with our team and our value proposition, which is very important to us!
Thanks again and we look forward to future opportunities to work together.
Jaw-dropping reactions. Well done!!!
...Matt was professional and very easy to work with both pre-planning and during the conference. The Graphic recordings of two of our plenary presentations were a huge hit for both our attendees and presenters. Attendees enjoyed the visual addition to the presentation and we had many people lined up to review the drawings in completion after the presentations.
Thank you for the graphics! These are WONDERFUL! I’ve had such positive feedback from the participants about this very special feature of yesterday’s meeting. I can hardly wait to show them to everyone at our Town Hall tomorrow morning!
You did an amazing job! Can’t sing your praises enough! Look forward to working with you in September at Annual!
This layering and cohesion was not at all visible in the linear presentation but presented as a whole, was exceptional- and, honestly a great way for those that would be in attendance to accept the vision.
Your leadership, direction and guidance last night thru the brainstorming was so much more than I ever thought or imagined!
You were tremendous this week, man! Please consider MCCA among your fans.
There were a lot of consistent comments about the quality of the venue and whatnot, but the most consistent thing I heard was compliments on your work and what you contributed to the convention.
We'd love to book you for next year's convention...
So some exciting news for you… our Executive Leadership Team, specifically our CEO, was so impressed by this art piece that he wants posters made to put in ELT offices and other M Health Fairview venues to remind us of our ongoing work and connection to the community. How awesome!!
Thank you again! I have already shared with my team! I love your style. You are so talented!
You brought a layer of richness and excitement to the conference that was pretty magical!! And thank you for sending the digital files ... they are gorgeous!!
These graphic recordings gave a fun and surprisingly on-point review of the meeting.
This session was outstanding! The way it focused more on Matt's drawings than Power Point was very effective!
