Using simple visual elements – people, barns, money – quick comparisons are easy to make and change – in the number of farmers, size of farms, value of farmland and more – is clearly communicated.

The success of a new strategy or vision depends on efficiently generating understanding with stakeholders and communicating value to secure funding. The Catalyst Centre at the University of Guelph contacted KAP Design to visualize Precision AgriFood Technology Research and Innovation For Commercialization (PATRIC), an exciting new platform that “enables data-driven technologies and services to food producers, processors, distributors and retailers.”

The infographic was designed after a thorough discovery process with the Catalyst Centre team to clarify the pitch and multiple sketching sessions to arrive at a dynamic visual solution.

KAP successfully brought the vision to life with this engaging infographic that efficiently communicates the exciting possibilities and outcomes of PATRIC. This visual pitch is an important asset in the Catalyst Centre’s funding application as well as a valuable tool for structuring conversations with potential partners and collaborators.

KAP recently worked with eMERGE to create this information graphic or visual explanation to communicate who eMERGE is and what they do.

The project began with a discovery meeting in which the eMERGE team were asked to identify customer barriers to understanding and participating in the eMERGE programs. The messaging was then clarified in a collaborative process that leveraged feedback from different stakeholders.

Designing the visual story included creating multiple icons and illustrations that would engage customers and stakeholders and drive understanding.

The finished infographic will be used in customer-facing communication, partner conversations, internal strategy and in social media.

Presentation Design: Completing the Work–Share–Grow Cycle

Work–share–grow cycle by KAP Design

Work–share–grow cycle by KAP Design.

You invest months of work – meetings, researching, collaborating, innovating – to create knowledge and find solutions. Great work needs to be shared to have impact and grow partnerships, clients and funding. You are added to the speakers list at an important conference. Preparing to share your work, you cut chunks of text from a report and paste them into a slide presentation. The presentation falls flat. You don’t make an impact.

Lack-luster presentations prevent important, innovative work from reaching and resonating with audiences. When the work-share-grow circle is broken, progress and growth is limited.

KAP Design worked with the University of Guelph to design an engaging presentation to tell the Grow Guelph story. First, KAP clarified the story from a Grow Guelph report and a variety of existing presentation content. Next, KAP created bold visual content – icons, illustrations – and designed an engaging 30-slide visual presentation.

The presenter reported being very confident backed up by the powerful visual story. The presentation connected with the audience resulting in increased information retention in follow-up conversations. Grow Guelph’s story is understood and the program is set up for growth.

The O’Halloran Group boilerplate by KAP Design.

Continuing to work with The O’Halloran Group (O’HG) to develop their brand, KAP collaborated with the O’HG team to clarify their pitch and then visualize it. The result, an engaging and informative visual boilerplate, is included in O’HG reports, shared in social media and will be integrated into a new website.

A highlight of the collaborative process was an exercise that required the entire O’HG team to become visual thinkers. Each person was asked to draw a picture that defined who the company is, what they do and how they do it. When the images were presented, many new insights were discovered that informed the final visual solution.
