Meeting or team facilitation using large format visuals to guide participants towards consensus-driven decisions. We plan the engagement, prepare the materials, direct the meeting, and facilitate participants towards the outcomes, large-scale visual charts and placemat-sized visual templates help to gather ideas. We partner with you to design the agenda and deliver desired outcomes.
Visuals that describes complex future states, current operating environments, or plans or proposals on a single placemat-sized sheet of paper. Data is gathered from existing source documents (ie – strategic plans), facilitated team meetings, and key stakeholder interviews. Content is organized using a technique called “visual triage” for sifting and binning similar themes. Themes are then linked into a single cohesive story or message. A visual is then designed around that story. Vision maps synthesizes or replaces lengthy documents and invites communication between the presenter and audience.
Illustrating the conversations and information shared during a meeting. We do not interact with the team except for a few clarifying questions; we silently capture what they have to say. Success depends on a self-directed team or a traditional facilitator to manage the flow of the meeting. We should be informed of the agenda so we can prepare an icon library to draw from.
Sketchnoting is small-scale graphic recording which is then shared with the group once complete. Although it does not have the same impact on the group experience or memory as full-scale graphic recording, it is effective when graphic recording is unfeasible.
High-speed, time-lapsed illustration captured on video and voiced explanations and to communicate messages quickly and efficiently to wide audiences.

A partnership between coach and coachee in order to develop personal and professional goals. The coachee works towards fulfilling their goals; the coach acts as a witness, a mirror, a listener, an empower, and sometimes, a disruptor—whatever behaviors the coachee needs in order to create new habits and achieve their goals. A coach will help care for the fuller version of yourself as you transform and transition. Coaching models we use are the Coactive Model, integrated with leading practices in visualization, such as the Grove's Personal Compass Workbook (video). Coaching includes:
Active listening and asking powerful questions
Brainstorming activities and accountable action plans
Exposure to new ideas
Personal stories and insights
Visual templates, sketch-journaling, other visual activities
Visual methodology training: We train others in graphic facilitation, graphic recording, vision maps, mindmapping, and visual problem solving methods.
Team and meeting facilitation: Traditional, non-visual team or meeting facilitation by IAF Certified Professional Facilitators.
