A humorous and visual story – that’s what a great cartoon conveys – and they can be used almost anywhere. Visual Thinkery cartoons have been used to help European Commissioners think about plastic pollution, provide engaging internal comms on Digital Transformation, and to bring word-heavy learning materials to life.
All the examples below have been created using Visual Thinkery’s 10 ideas process, which explores multiple directions collaboratively using conversation.
