When you need to see you ideas so others can begin to believe in them, then you need to the Thinking Canvas and the skill of a Visual Thinkologist. The Thinking Canvas helps guide others to become better thinkers and communicators of their ideas through active engagement and visualization.
Making your ideas tangible!
“Kevin Dulle is one amazing talent! As I’ve seen many times, not only can he visually translate any discussion in real-time, but he can lead any group in thinking creatively and developing ideas. I’m in awe.”

The Power of Visuals
Capturing meeting conversations or presentations at gatherings, visual translations highlight key ideas, information or observations in a way that creates a dynamic and memorable take-away. A take-away that ignites the imagination and creates a visual reminder that brings audiences back to the event.
Would you like your ideas to be memorable?
Audience and Attendee Feedback
Surveys typically only seek the answers people are searching for, but do not explore other possibilities. Using graphic walls can create an engaging and interactive medium which audiences and event attendees want to participate with.
Crowds gather and watch ideas grow. Not ideas from presenters or even vendors, but ideas that other attendees share. As the visual translator, its my role to also provide connection with the ideas and thoughts provided by the audience and attendees in a form that no survey can create.
Hear and see what your attendees really think.
Are your workshop handouts the same text heavy PowerPoint printouts that everyone else does?
Creating graphic worksheets helps to engage attendees in wanting to capture the ideas shared during the workshop. It helps them become more engaged in the content and make the content more personal and of greater value. Designed like idea maps, graphic worksheets add that bit of magic that is lacking in most handout material.
“Working with Kevin has been a great experience. He has helped change our workshops to become more engaging and creative.” – Dennis M. W.
Do you want to add more life to your ideas?
Leveraging visual explanation storyboards, ideas can be communicated clearly. Words alone can be misinterpreted or confusing. We learn better visually and using visual storyboards can help communicate complex ideas quickly.
Have a complex idea or process your need to explain easily? Maybe its time to have others see your idea to begin to believe and understand.
Need Something Special
Have some other needs for visualization? Customized work for presentations, illustration and special uses are always possible.
Want to learn how visuals can work for you, let’s chat.
Many people ask me why I do Visual Translations. The answer is easy. I enjoy helping others communicate better and have their ideas become understood and memorable.
Most of how we communicate is visual, literally almost 90%. We’re visual creatures by nature. Yet, too many people rely only on the spoken or printed word to help convey ideas and hope that others understand and retain what was shared. The dilemma is that many of us spend much of our energy trying to communicate ideas, strategies and intentions with only words. The challenge with this is there are no memory triggers associated with this form of communication. With no visual triggers, there is nothing to help people remember what you are trying to express. The shocking results from university research on memory tells us that people only remember 9-10% at best of what your told them months later.
Hello, my name is Kevin Dulle and I help others communicate, explain easier, and think better through the use of illustrated visuals.
I have been creating illustrations for over 40 years for both myself as art and for others as explanation imagery. I combine my love of illustration with a formal education in design, mathematics, logic and a career in architecture to create images that enhance ideas. Sounds pretty heavy right? Well maybe it is, and this is what makes what I do so unique. I combine each of these disciplines into the medium of Visual Translation. Simply stated, I convert other’s ideas, communication, and conversations into hand-drawn visual storyboards and images so people understand better and see the same information and retain ideas longer.
Growing up in Missouri, all my life I have heard the phrase ‘show me.’ It’s even our state motto. A motto I have taken to heart with a passion for helping others see ideas. My motto is simple, people must see to believe in an idea, Once people believe, then they can act on that idea making it possible to achieve.
Meetings, gatherings, lectures and workshops all have become to formulated. Content is reused over and over, mostly because people resource existing content and try to make it work for their need or, worse, rely on text and the spoken word to try and convey ideas. My goal is to help people communicate better and have their ideas remembered.
Don’t believe what you read, see for yourself who some of my clients are and how their sharing their thinking so that those ideas stick clearly in the minds of others. Take a peek at some of the different ways visual translation have been used.
As children, we’re given a unique ability to use our imagination to create fantastic worlds around us that are invisible to others. In our minds eye, we can sail the high seas in search of gold, battle pirates who attempt to take that very booty. We can confront dragons to get a marshmallow toasted. In …
Experience design is both a complex and creative process. It requires a strong knowledge mix of key design principles, human behavior, and collaboration. Due to the amount of detail and all the moving parts that need to be harmonized, it is easy for designers to lose sight of who the real audience is or the intention …
