New Visual Paradigms

December 3, 2020
1:30 – 5:00 P.M.
While we are used to some standard visual frameworks, we have seen some experiment by combining different visual frameworks and patterns to explain requirements, business scenarios to aid different aspects of a project during it’s lifecycle.
During the workshop we will explore techniques, patterns and some non-traditional ways of combining age-old frameworks to produce results that encourage collaboration, story telling and critical analysis.
The workshop will be around:
– Some theoretical approaches for information visualisation and communication
– Briefly show some of the standard constructs used, from flowcharts, mindmaps etc, to decision making frameworks such as SWOT, Business Model Canvas etc.
– Look at how techniques in visual information augmentation for these frameworks will tune the visuals to be more ‘decision oriented/critical analysis oriented/collaboration oriented’.
– Illustrate how to use these visual strategies in collaborating remotely and running workshops.
