bikablo basics training:
your entry into the world of visual language.
the basics of visual thinking, learning, and collaboration – with the bikablo technique
Lay the foundation stone for your future as a visualizer: Step by step, using the pictograms, figures and graphics elements of the bikablo technique, you will acquire basic knowledge of visual language for flipchart and pin board. And you will design your first presentation posters, which you can put straight to use the very next day. You can leave your projector in the cupboard, from now on.
In a relaxed learning environment, you will experience just how easy it is to make even large pin board surfaces eye-catching and lively, using simple tricks. The trainers take a lot of time letting you in on the secrets of the bikablo visualization technique, demonstrating how to draw details for you and answering your questions.
What to expect
In this training, we focus on the basics of drawing and imagery in visual language:
No matter how small or big your talent, you will take your first visual steps on a flip chart and learn how to use small details to make large spaces look clear, attractive, and lively.
You will be working in small groups and both trainers will take plenty of time to answer your questions and guide you into the world of visual language with hints and techniques suited to fit your individual progress.
