What we do & who we are

We are a group of visual storytellers who specialise in turning complex (and potentially boring) information into highly shareable visual stories that are easy to understand and remember. In other words they make a potentially cold topic a bit more human.

Our clients use our stories for communicating internal initiatives (for example: new strategy, change initiative etc) as well as in external marketing. In marketing projects we often team up with graphic designers if the client wants as slicker look and feel. See example.

Our services

We are very much about doing the think as well as the ink. We can execute your idea but we are at our best when we get to come up with ideas and develop stories (in collaboration with you, of course).

  • Narrative infographic(s) (online or print) – when you need to communicate complex topics/processes
  • Cartoons – i.e. single panel comic (online or print) – when you need to grab people’s attention
  • Comics – when you need to communicate complex topics/processes
  • PowerPoint presentations (an example of an illustrated PowerPoint presentation)
  • Layout and design for printed booklets, leaflets etc (when part of a visual storytelling project)

Copywriting and copy editing is included.

We also offer:

  • Graphic recording and live sketchnoting – examples of iPad sketchnotes
  • Rich pictures – if you need to explore an idea or a problem for example in a workshop setting
