  1. scribing

    A scribe is a person who serves as a professional copyist, especially one who made copies of manuscripts before the invention of automatic printing.The profession of the scribe, previously widespread across cultures, lost most of its prominence and status with the advent of the printing press. The work of scribes can involve copying manuscripts and other texts as well as secretarial and administrative duties such as the taking of dictation and keeping of business, judicial, and historical records for kings, nobles, temples, and cities. The profession has developed into public servants, journalists, accountants, bookkeepers, typists, and lawyers. In societies with low literacy rates, street-corner letter-writers (and readers) may still be found providing scribe service.

    of Scribe


  1. Scribing

    Scribing is a style or method of graffiti in which a scribe is used to tag on glass surfaces. There are two popular types of scribes. The first is the arrowhead scribe, held between the thumb and index finger, used for quick connectible-style tags on glass. The second is the pen scribe, usually used for more detailed tagging. Scribing can be loud, especially when doing connectibles on glass. Scribing is also a technique used in the corporate world to visually document concepts in a graphic format. Companies such as The WildWorks Group and Griot’s Eye take conversations and convert them in real time on whiteboard walls or storyboards surrounding participants. A scribe works on large walls, using markers pens to map conversations live at events, interpreting and drawing ideas quickly, using pictures, diagrams and symbols to make ideas visible and accessible. As the brainstorming session flows, “scribes” translate the main ideas of the conversation into keywords and graphics. The exercise is dynamic in helping to capture concepts that are sometimes lost in a flow of words. It also helps to reinforce thoughts for people who are visual learners.
