Episode details

90 percent of the information consumed by our brain is visual. Humans are visual beings who have been communicating through visuals for eons. You remember 80 percent of what you see but only 20 percent of what you read.

With over 5 billion pieces of content published daily online (AKA "Communication Noise") and audiences that experience decreasing attention spans, businesses of all sizes are struggling to get their marketing messages across. In this episode, we'd like to unpack the narrative power of visual content, and discuss how to master its core formats; from infographics, graphics, charts & reports, to interactive presentations.
