Seeing the Power of Visual Communication
Here’s some Friday inspiration for everyone.
For those of you who think that the best way to communicate is through the written word, here’s a brief article you may find enlightening! VizThink, a global online community interested in visual communication, held several workshops this year centered on helping people realize the power of visual communication.
Through hands-on events, individuals not only learned how much their minds play a part in the communication process, but also the power behind visual communication. In a wrap-up from one of these workshops, VizThink cites how sketchnoting - think of it as doodling meets mind mapping – can help increase an individual’s engagement thereby leading to a greater understanding and remembering.
So next time someone tells you that visual communication is a waste of time, invite them to a game of Pictionary, or suggest some sketchnoting!
