I had an incredible opportunity to join the Steelcase Global Design team in their monthly quest for a deeper understanding of our world. Their team finds time once a month to gather and discuss topics outside the world of design; past talks have covered "the art of conversations" and experiencing a "holy moment."

I chose to focus my talk on visual literacy. This can be a very broad topic, so I focused on its use in education, how humans are naturally wired to think visually, and comparisons to Reading and Writing literacy scales. To establish a few conversation starters, I put together a series of points and shared two videos - with a little help from the Heroes, of course.
