It goes without saying that we live in a visual age. It’s estimated that by 2020 nearly 1 million minutes of video content will cross the internet every single second. From videos to emojis, people now confidently share and communicate using all things visual.

Our preference for visuals is hardly surprising – in an age of information-overload, our brains process visuals 60,000 times faster than text. To compete with all the other content fighting for attention, ramping up your visual storytelling can be a great strategy for generating cut-through.

At this seminar, we’ll hear from a range of charities on how they’re achieving deeper engagement by telling their stories using imagery across a range of channels and mediums. Our speakers will offer their top tips on how your charity can do the same. We’ll explore:

  • The psychology of visual content – what makes imagery resonate?
  • Using surprising and striking imagery to grab attention
  • From infographics to video – using the right medium
  • Choosing the right channels for your visuals and audience
