  6. 6. We’ve all sat through these presentations, (and worse, we’ve all created these presentations). They’re painful and a waste of everyone’s time. People don’t pay attention. You need engagement before you get buy in. But how do you get a viewer engaged who has already seen presentations that are nearly identical? design
  7. 7. People have been communicating with images for tens of thousands of years longer than we have been communicating with the written word. Visual communication had a 35,000 year head start ahead of the written word1 . Our brains are better equipped to comprehend and store visual information.
