Title: Clive Thompson on the Power of Visual Thinking
Context: Shut up* and draw. You’ll make more sense. *Not meant pejoratively.
Synopsis: As designers we are particularly good at thinking visually. When working with people who are not so “artistically” inclined we tend to fall into their pattern of communication using words and figures because we assume that’s what will make the most sense to them. Bullshit. Use visuals and pictures and designs to explain yourself whenever possible and the world will be a better place. Trust me.
Best Bit(s): “If you want everyone to have the same mental model of a problem, the fastest way to do it is with a picture”
