visual storytelling

Visual storytelling gets and keeps people's attention.

Lack of attention can be costly. When people are bored and distracted, important messages go unheard. Time and money are wasted and problems remain unsolved.

Most people are visual learners.

That means messages which include visuals are far more likely to be received, remembered, and acted on. When communication is visually creative, ideas turn into action! Better Visuals Mean Better Everything!

Better Visuals Mean Better Everything!

  • Successful events: Visuals at conferences and workshops create excitement and connection, and help recall important takeaways when the event is done.
  • Social media buzz: Unique images that can be shared on multiple platforms are crucial for getting and keeping attention online.
  • Concise and memorable messages: Visuals communicate with less friction and more impact, fostering both clarity and collaboration.

With our unique brand of visual storytelling, people won’t just enjoy and remember your message-they’ll want to revisit it again and again.

What They're Saying

“Terry’s work livens up an event for attendees and captures some of the big ideas for all. His illustrations are valuable both to make in-person experiences more dynamic and to help create lasting takeaways. We at consider him an important part of our strategy for making our events unique, memorable and impactful.”

Christopher Wink, CEO and Co-Founder

“Terry’s work brings people together for common mission and purpose. Art breaks down communication barriers and unites us. He excites and delights the room with his real-time ability to capture people’s emotions, words and thoughts. His work transforms an ordinary conference into a feast for the senses.”

Patty Cook, Dunleavy & Associates

“Terry took a very technical subject matter and was able to represent the major themes in a tangible, fun visual story. His presence didn’t distract from our conversation and the outcome has been used to brief our employees and customers on the key takeaway from the day.”

Steven Pepe, Oliver Healthcare

“Terry and his team were fantastic to work with – we needed a video to be used in promotional pieces to clearly explain a complicated policy. They helped to clarify our message and brought our vision to life, on time and within our budget!  ”


Christian Soltysiak, Managing Director/Interim Executive Director

“We loved working with you! You made it so easy, and we love how you captured the day in such a powerful, informative, creative way, thank you, thank you! We’re grateful for this new partnership, and hope we’ll have the opportunity to work together again down the road.”

Dana M. Heiman, Brandywine Health Foundation

“Thank you for the quick turnaround and the quick commitment to do this project. Your work is fun and captured the stories and ideas very well. It was a pleasure to work with you.”

Kate Ebner, CEO, The Nebo Foundation

“Terry was very easy to work with. We had never used a graphic recorder for one of our meetings, and although the content was very technical, the attendees really enjoyed seeing Terry’s visual images of the presentations and conversations. Also, Terry’s services were affordable, and his follow up was immediate! We had our images by the end of the week.”

Katherine Masuch, Bristol Meyers-Squibb Foundation

“Terry’s work was outstanding. Our event was very complex as we are an organization that focuses on saving lives through organ donation and transplantation. Terry was able to capture our presentations with ease and speed, something that I didn’t expect to be done so seamlessly. We will definitely use Terry’s services in the future.”

Ieesha Johnson, Living Legacy Foundation of Maryland
