What is Footboard?


Get ready for this exciting bus journey with us!

Oh, but wait, let us introduce ourselves first.

For that, you need to imagine what we tell you.

Imagine the most important event of your life is going to take place. It could be your wedding, your baby shower, your dad’s 70th birthday, or anything special. You have been planning and prepping for it months in advance to make it successful.







On the day of the event, many family and friends show up. The setting is happy and festive. You want to interact with everyone and know what your sister’s kids are doing and if Srini Uncle is enjoying himself and the funny jokes cracked by your best buddy.

But imagine if you could relive these experiences, stories, and tidbits after the event is over. 

But you are not superhuman to be able to talk to all. Everything goes by so fast that in the end, you hardly know what all happened during the event.

Footboard can turn this imagination into reality.

How? - you ask. By using the power of illustration and storytelling!


In other words, we create an illustrated book that is unique to you, your people and your special event! We keep capturing moments, stories, emotions, objects, spaces throughout the event.

Once it is over, we draw out all the beautiful memories and compile them into a book. 



And when you finally see it, with every page you turn, your smile will get bigger. You can replay all the missed moments.

And you know what's even more special?

You can relive these memories whenever you want! Imagine that you chance upon this book after a couple of years. You may have forgotten it all, but this book will never let that ever happen!



So that is Footboard for you! 

Illustrating memories!

How is Footboard different from photography and videography?

How is Footboard different from photography and videography?

We knew you would pose this question for us, and so we have pointers ready for you! Need a more visual and practical guide?


Please go through our work!

Old is gold

Technology keeps upgrading and in the course, becoming obsolete. For example, VHS tapes, CDs, DVDs. But books are forever and evergreen.



Less is more

There will be thousands of photos and videos taken on your special day. How many of these can you recall? But, the book will have few special memories which will be etched in your mind to be cherished ever after.



Conversation starters

You can display the book on your coffee table, book shelf, or showcase. Trust us, your guests will definitely ask you about it!

No need to be tech-savvy; 

No need for gadgets

It is a perfect gift for your grandparents, granduncles and grand aunties who are not that tech savvy.

One of a kind experience

You can sit in your balcony alone or with your near and dear ones and thoroughly enjoy every page of the book while sipping your coffee and reliving your cherished moments!



A personal touch to your fond memories

Some things require a special touch that a camera lens cannot capture.

More than a moment

Sometimes, a single photo cannot narrate a story. But, a series of illustrations can!



Why did we name ourselves Footboard?

Why did we name ourselves Footboard?

We’ve reached the next stop!

You must be wondering what’s with a bus ride and what does footboard mean? 


We are going to clear all your doubts right away!

And the guests are the passengers who get onto the bus or leave it at various bus stops. The hosts or organisers of the event are the bus driver and the bus conductor who take all the family, friends and other members on their eventful bus journey.

We enter the bus and stand on the footboard to observe and capture all the stories during the journey.

So, you can call us Footboarders!

The bus journey takes us through the different episodes of your event. Every bus stop is another episode. 

Throughout this journey from the starting point to the final destination, there is so much happening!

We get down at every stop, allow the new passengers to get it, and get onto the footboard again to continue playing our role!

Our Process

Our Process
How does Footboard function?

How does Footboard function?

I. Before the event

Chit-chat over Chai or Coffee (we love both)

We are an enthusiastic bunch but don’t worry - we won’t gatecrash your special event! We will first get to know you and your requirements. For that, we can either meet up online or offline (we are super flexible) and fix the dates and events that you want us to capture.



How well do you know yourself?

After all the formal discussions, it’s time to play a fun game! It’s called - ‘How well do you know yourself?’ We will share a questionnaire with you to fill out. Unlike schools, some cheating is allowed here - you can take the help of your family and friends to fill it. But do not ask Uncle Google for help! Our motive is to get to know you inside and out so that we do not miss out on any critical details before the main event!

II. During the event

Footboarders make an entrance

Sounding fancy? Nah, we are quite the opposite. It’s easy to identify us. See a bunch of people with satchel bags, pencils and sketchbooks in hand? Yes, that’s us, the Footboarders!

Mission story hunting

Our job starts right at the entrance of the place. We hunt down stories from every nook and cranny of the event. We observe everyone, make random conversations with them and rapidly take notes for the big reveal later!



Time to bid goodbye

Taking leave after spending so much time together is indeed hard. But, we promise to meet again, and at that time, we will have your illustrated book ready!

III. After the event

Behind the scenes 

(or our screens)

We start our favourite part of the process - working on your book! We go through the notes, structure all the stories and content, and start making your book.

Print print print

Once the digital copy is ready, it’s time to print! The music of the printing machines, the beautiful scent of the paper, the fresh colours - it’s all so exhilarating. And when we finally hold the perfectly bound book in our hands - it’s like the event coming to life once again!

The Big Reveal

Without wasting any time, we mail you the freshly printed copies and eagerly await your call! And of course, we hope to join you for many more events!
