Red Light Go: Mixed Signals in Visual Communication

  • May 3, 2012 · 6:30 PM
  • Liquidnet


Clearly communicating ideas can sometimes be challenging.  Using visuals can enhance mutual understanding, but using the wrong visuals can amplify the confusion and miscommunication.  (And that's just not cool.)

Join VizThink NYC, with guest presenters Todd Cherches & Steve Cherches of BigBlueGumball, as we explore the impact of "mixed signals" in visual communication, and how we might avoid them.

So, grab a pen, your creativity, and maybe a friend, and come on down (or up!) for this fun and interactive 2-hour workshop.

 

 

*Side note: By now you've probably heard of the phenomenon that is the "Draw Something" app.  The popularity of this app supports our belief that people have an innate drive to communicate visuallly.  With that in mind, you might want to download the little app (for free), and maybe we'll have some fun with it at the event.  For the record, we have no ties to the game or the developer - other than the fact that we think it's awesome. :-)

    This was one of the best workshops of all time and, possibly, one of the greatest experiences of my life. (And I'm not just saying that because I was one of the presenters. :) Seriously, what made it successful was the enthusiasm, energy, and collective creativity of everyone in the room. Thanks to all for making it a really fun night!

    This was my first Meetup event and it will not be my last. I had a wonderful time. The energy in the room was electric and the presenters were genuine, knowledgeable and humorous.

    Really great job by the presenters of creating an engaging, rich, interactive experience. It didn't go super-deep into the content, but on the other hand, I think it was well-tailored to a broad audience who might be unfamiliar with the cognitive dissonance issues they discussed.

    Hi Jill.. Sorry you can't make it. Yes, we'll post some visuals from the event - although much of the experience will be interactive and experiential. We'll try to capture the moments as best we can though....!

    Hey! I'd love to be there but have a conflict... Hope someone will post visuals from the event.
