Visual thinking describes our ability to see, communicate and solve problems in visual space. With practice, it's accessible to virtually all of us. Visual thinking is intrinsically linked to creative thinking, and has become an increasingly essential skill in the 21st century workplace.

A workshop delivered at design consultancy Symplicit, with a focus on sketching methods for human-centred design

Online training
In 2020, I founded Visual Academy, which provides training on drawing, visual communication and storytelling. Its first course, Visual Thinking for Human-Centred Design, is a 3-week program designed to equip designers and researchers with the visual thinking toolkit.
Check out Visual Academy here.
In-person training
I offer half-day and full-day training on the topics below. I can provide training either in-person or remotely. We can also arrange for your team to solve a specific problem during the session.
