Conversations to cartoons

Explain or Campaign?

Looking for a fresh angle to explain something complex? Need to bring something wordy to life? To get a message across, a more visual approach is maybe what you need. Visual Thinkery’s collaborative 10 ideas process creates ideas from an open facilitated conversation.

The Educators
The Activists
The Get-together
The Community
The Practitioners

Or maybe you need to capture the insight of a conversation in real time as it unfolds? We work with all sorts of organisations and communities, creating visual languages and helping people be more visual in their own practice.
