A Thousand Words Consulting uses visual storytelling to help improve the way we connect with and collaborate on social issues.
IT’S MORE THAN A PRETTY PICTURE – IT’S ABOUT BETTER DEFINING AND UNDERSTANDING COMPLEX IDEAS AND BEING MORE INCLUSIVE AND ENGAGING THROUGHOUT THE PROCESS.
You have a kick-ass idea, but words are not doing it justice. You want people to understand it, engage with it, and be inspired. I help clarify complex ideas with illustrations that help your message land. Sometimes you want all this magic to happen in the moment. I can work with you graphic recording your idea on a sheet of paper, a full-on poster or digitally on a screen during a live presentation.
Try this for: concepts, academic abstracts, graphical abstracts, company reports, research findings, policy analysis, proposals, presentations, educational resources, poems, things that are awkward to talk about
Illustration for ideas
This is classic brainstorming on a whiteboard or the back of a napkin – whether done solo or as a team. The process is more important than the product. By mixing illustration and facilitation, I can help you arrive at an idea, build consensus and make everyone feel heard.
Try this for: drafting, planning, strategy workshops, feedback sessions, participatory research and visual research methods, uncomfortable conversations
Me too! You’ve found my sweet* spot!
* ‘dulce’ is Spanish for ‘sweet’, so this is literally my spot.
Fantastic visual summary of our Bristol Green Capital Partnership gathering on the city’s carbon neutral ambition!

Thanks so much for this – it’s really good and also really useful as it summarises what I was otherwise going to summarise myself in written form.
