bikablo International Visual Storytelling Training

bikablo akademie - Visual Meeting Facilitation 01

Allow people access to those topics which are close to your heart in a whole new way. “Visual Storytelling” transforms even dry, complex subjects into lively picture stories. With the bikablo® emotions figures, large-format layout techniques and visual dramatic composition, you can convey your messages in a more emotional and lively way, thereby opening a door to education, discussion and change in a way that goes beyond the “death by PowerPoint” approach.

What is it about?

Drawing and storytelling are cultural techniques that date back centuries, designed to allow knowledge to be experienced and conveyed, as well as keep it alive. Nowadays, Visual Storytelling is being used increasingly widely in organisations in order to support processes by ensuring the change process is understood by all those involved. Examples include “design thinking”, the development of “customer journeys” and large-scale “strategic visualisations”.

This training offers a new means of presenting complex and abstract subjects. Each topic is transformed into an exciting picture story when you make its internal logic visible or explain it from the perspective of a lead character. Over the course of two days you will learn a wealth of new presentation possibilities and storytelling strategies.

“Visual Storytelling” is the ideal next step following a bikablo® basics training, in order to increase your skills set.

What you can expect?

New drawing techniques for figures: Step by step, you will learn to express feelings and present situations using speech bubbles, pictograms and the bikablo® emotion figures. In addition you can expect new techniques for endowing figures with character and mannerisms.

“big pictures”: Using overlapping and stacked perspective drawing techniques, text and colour, you will create poster designs to present multifaceted knowledge clearly in a large-scale format.

Process comics: You will deal with the basic rules of comics and learn to present instructions, processes or individual steps as narrative picture sequences.

From content to design: Learn how to turn abstract data into dramatic visual stories in a step-by-step approach.

Narrative presentation: You will transform presentations into lively narratives, develop the dramatic composition and so create live drawings and actively involve your audience.
