ONLINE - Bikablo Basics 1-Day Visual Training

Even when you believe you have no artistic talent – this is where you learn the basic visual vocabulary and ingredients for visualization with the bikablo® technique. For example, drawing simple flipchart templates that you can use in your work the next day!

What to expect in the two-day training... In the 2-day training, you will become familiar with the building blocks of the bikablo visualization technique (graphic elements, containers, people, and symbols) and combine them to create custom logos and simple diagrams. In this way, they develop the basic skills to create flipchart posters to communicate their own ideas. The two-day agenda covers:

    • Holding the pen and drawing the line: How do I draw clean lines and structure my space on the flip chart?

    • Graphics and text containers: How do I create simple arrows and connecting elements from basic geometric shapes in order to present related topics? Which text containers (e.g. speech bubbles) can be used to support which kinds of messages?

    • Objects and symbols: How do I draw simple symbols to underline messages? What is essential, what can be left out?Using markers to draw lines on a large scale

    • Figures: What easy ways does bikablo® provide to draw people, roles, groups and situations?
      Color and space: What are simple and fast options to color elements and spaces in a quick and simple way that supports the graphic structure?

    • Posters and Flipcharts: How do I combine the elements of the training (graphics, writing, symbols, figures, and color) to create to a flipchart or poster specific to my work that I can use immeadiately (welcome, agenda, instructions, group work)?

    What’s included;

    • All materials and supplies needed for the training.

    • Bikablo® StarterSet: Every participant receives our official StarterSet including four visualization markers and two StarterBooklets that summarize the principles, content and techniques of the training on 64 pages.

    • You are (still) convinced that you are not at all talented and still would like to learn how to visualize.

    • You have little experience with visualization so far and are looking for an easy way to improve your flip charts or whiteboarding skills with containers, graphics, symbols, and simple figures to make them clearer, visually appealing, and engaging.
