visual thinking

to make meetings memorable!

Collaborative visual thinking is a great way to meet people, to draw out ideas together and to think more creatively. It is a method in which participants contribute to the discussion not just verbally, but also by visualising the process of thinking. It can be used in all kinds of meetings, such as business negotiations, educational workshops, team or community building, professional networking, and project meetings for companies or researchers. Everyone can benefit from this innovative approach, because it improves:

Creative Thinking

Drawing ideas and using your hand-brain coordination triggers a different kind of thinking. You are challenged to think out of the box when faced with a co-design toolkit!

Collaboration & Innovation

Collaboration becomes easier when you can trace the thinking process, and literally see other's point of view. Innovative ideas emerge from the picture, where all the indivisual ideas come together.

Engagement & Sharing

Visualising ideas together creates a better platform for people to engage with each other, which is more accessible for participants who think differently  (e.g. introverts or natural visual thinkers). Sharing stories creates empathy and connection!

Curiosity & Understanding

Visualising the thinking process makes complex issues easier to understand, because image reveals connections and relationships. By sharing knowledge, and by asking critical questions, you gain insights and awareness.

Visual Agency is a Copenhagen-based practice that facilitates meetings, workshops and courses using collaborative visual thinking, a method developed by Agnieszka Mlicka, founder and facilitator at Visual Agency. With her background in Fine Art from the University of Oxford, and research at the University of the Arts London, she is now using this method to design unique experiences, engaging participants in a journey of visual exploration to stimulate curiosity, creativity and collaboration.
