Presentation held at O'Reilly Software Architecture 2018, London.
Describing software or IT architectures and effectively communicating about architecture to business stakeholders is a relevant and important skill for architects. After all, many architectural decisions are made by others, so they need to be informed with clear, honest, intelligible, and helpful information and advice. But it’s also hard, especially when communicating with nontechnical stakeholders.
This presentation shares relevant theories, techniques, and examples of creating architecture visualizations that are attractive, informative, and easier to understand for nontechnical audiences. We focus on eight facets of the visual communication of architecture: basic visual attributes, composition and layout, color, text, graphs, sketches, icons and images, and storytelling.
