The Business Benefits of Working Visually

Humans are visual

We take in massive amounts of information in the blink of an eye. For most of us the majority of sensory receptors are in our eyes, so 90% of data is communicated to us visually. That’s why we like visuals.

It's quicker

We live in a fast world. We use symbols when communication is critical or urgent. It takes just 250 milliseconds to process and understand a symbol. Get your message across faster with an image.

It's more engaging

Working visually switches on all 4 brain lobes. Your colleagues and customers are more engaged when they see visual communications. If you want your audience to engage with your message, work visually.

It's more inclusive

As the size of your audience increases so does their language, learning and literacy needs. Using images to support text reduces barriers and ensures more people are included in your message.

It's stickier

You remember visual information better and also for longer. Research has shown a significant recall advantage for words that were drawn instead of written. If you want your message to stick, draw it.

It's the future

You need to be collaborative, creative and innovative to stand out from the crowd. We know from working with hundreds of clients that working visually gives you a business advantage. Now. And for the future.

What people say about our training

Found the exercises well paced and just the right mix. Also really enjoyed looking at your / others’ work for inspiration – thanks!

S. Mehigan

I’ve really enjoyed this course and have learnt so much and I’m looking forward to putting what I’ve learnt into practice over the coming weeks!

K. Mistry

The course was great, the level of content challenging but still manageable alongside work and other commitments. The platform was clear and easy to navigate – and of course, beautiful. I found I was putting the lessons to use in my working and home life from week 1. Highly recommended.

N. Jenkins

A good mix of reading, theory and intense practice – all of which got me up to speed for work doing Graphicking even while the course was still underway

M. Penney

It is well designed, going step by step, and breaking down the process and weekly exercises in a nice way. The weekly goals are not out of reach, and they carefully push me out of my comfort zone. And to have Cara as a coach, with frequent and one-to-one feedback is the cherry on the cake

A. Curdy

I found the push to do the exercise and having to post them up for feedback is a great form of accountability.

T. Conyers

I think this this is a fabulous course. I’d highly recommend it to anyone and your support has been brilliant

G. Cox

I definitely feel empowered to keep working at this, and that my development has come on thanks to the structure and impetus of the course!

D. Andrews

I love your courses… They are so well thought out and carefully paced to allow a rich learning experience which is manageable with a full time job. I really appreciate all of the encouragement and support. Thank you
