As Jonge Honden we started to communicate visually for two reasons. 1. We often come to organizations where we need to use complex material quickly. Visualization creates clarity and invites you to engage in the conversation about the topic that you draw. 2. It gives pleasure! Not only for participants but also for yourself it is wonderful to crawl out of the text and let go of your creativity.
