In a world inundated with visual information, you know you need to create beautiful content to engage your audience, but do you have the tools and resources you need?

Hi, I’m founder of Visme and I’m really excited to tell you about a new initiative we’re launching that will help you become a more effective visual communicator.

15 years ago I started to teach myself how to design and this led me to start my own Web Design agency HindSite Interactive which has won several awards and Visme, an easy-to-use visual content tool used in over 100 countries, and over the course of the last 15 years I’ve noticed a big problem in communication:

 

90% of the information consumed by our brain is Visual.

Humans are visual beings. and we’ve been communicating visually for thousands of years. Cavemen communicated with cave paintings and petroglyphs while Egyptians used Hieroglyphics.

Fast forward to today: we’re using various forms of graphics such as memes, videos, presentations and most recently infographics.

 

Allegedly, 65% of population are visual learners.

Think about it: 90% of information transmitted to our brain is visual. You remember 80% of what you see, but only 20% of what you read.

Yet amazingly, the majority of the population have little to no knowledge on effective visual communication.

That is why my team and I have decided to launch the “Make Information Beautiful” initiative.

This series is not about making you into a graphic designer. Most of you don’t have the time to learn the theory behind graphic design.

So my plan is to give you practical, actionable advice that can be applied right away. And you can use it with any tool and for virtually any design medium.

That’s why no matter what your profession and where you’re from this series is going to teach how to communicate visually; to help you improve the way you present, to market your business or start-up or teach and communicate with your team.

Join me on this journey. Let’s get started!
