Translation: I’m excited about seeing words in pictures. It’s quicker and it’s fun.
I guess it was always going to happen. Broadsheets became tabloids. Emails became tweets. Executive summaries became infographics. And now words have become emoticons.
And it’s not just fun.

Over the past year we’ve produced animations, whiteboard animations, strategies using icons, augmented reality, interactive photos, photo montages and more to cut through.
