Visual explanation.

Yesterday I did a drawing workshop with Dave Gray, who wrote Gamestorming. For me, any day with Sharpies and paper is a happy day, but this one was a particularly happy and useful day. It’s only my second week at Clearleft, so it was great to spend the day with the team too.

Despite being known as a content person (which often means ‘writing’ enthusiast) I like to think visually and I often use mind maps for laying out, organising and presenting my thoughts.

But then this handy little 9-box grid came into my life, and I shall be using it as a reference for creating diagrams around complex concepts. Dave encourages us to share the work we do with him, so here it is!
