We turn complexity into clarity with illustrations, strategy maps and diagrams, live scribing, and other visual communications.

Less clutter,
More clarity!

You know how everybody wants to be ‘on the same page’? We draw that page.

Real progress can be held back by the weight of too many slide presentations, emails, Slack messages, and reports. We help you turn clutter into clarity by distilling it and bringing it to life visually, with illustrations, visual facilitation and live scribing. This means you can tell your story better, and connect with your audiences and stakeholders better.

Diagrams, maps and illustrations

People need to see the change to be the change. If you’re in the business of strategic communication or change management, you know how important it is for everybody to connect their heads, hearts and hands to your message.

We work with you to get to the essence of your story, and then illustrate it in various ways, for various audiences and media. Here are some ways our visualisations can help:

  • Strategic visions and plans
  • Illustrating complex systems or concepts
  • Visualising research insights and user experiences
  • Change communications and other corporate communications
  • Books and other publication illustrations

Graphic facilitation

Talkfests are so last century. It’s time to get everybody in your meetings using their hands as well as their mouths, and capturing and mapping their ideas. This increases engagement, helps everybody ‘connect the dots’ better, have better ideas, and make decisions faster.

Do you already use sticky notes and business model canvases? There is so much more! We can show you how to make all your meetings more visual:

Product and service design

Agile ceremonies and management

Change strategy and management

Team dynamics and alignment

Wow I love the report!! I especially love what you captured in the current challenge, how we are going to get there, and those beautiful images at the end about how we can shift in our approach and our thinking – that is SO amazing. I feel that you’ve captured something really powerful there.
