Storyboarding

Breaking down complex communications and topics is not easy. But there are a number of tools which can help you go through a process of identifying the key messages, words and images that you want people to understand and remember.

Storyboarding is one of those.


What is storyboarding?

A storyboard is a graphic organiser that consists of illustrations or images displayed in sequence for the purpose of pre-visualising a motion picture, animation, motion graphic or interactive media sequence.

Storyboarding is the process of going through the organiser.
