Hey! For years I tried blogging and youtube but to me it felt like an uphill battle.

So, I decided to figure out how to represent ideas visually. After some trial and error, I was on to something. So I left my job and went full-time.

Today, my illustrations have been seen by millions of people and led me to work for Julian Shapiro, Shaan Puri, Matt D’Avella, Naval Ravikant, and others.

Despite never promoting myself as a freelancer opportunities kept rolling in more than I could handle.

On top of that people kept asking me how I come up with these simple and clever illustrations that drive so much engagement.

So…I’m creating this course and community. I’m holding nothing back. You'll learn everything I know.

Come say hello on Twitter.

Explain Ideas Visually

Why visuals work so well?

Why visuals work so well?
Fast Idea Delivery (save time for your audience)

Often visuals can communicate ideas in seconds that otherwise would take a blog post to explain.

People want to see cool ideas and people want to save time.

That's one of the reasons why explaining ideas visually works so well.

Adds Novelty to Ideas (amplify ideas)

Ideas hit differently with visuals. You can amplify ideas and bring new, better understanding to them.

This is also good if you're online credibility is low. Regardless of how unknown you might be if you'll package a good idea in easy-to-digest snappy visual people will tune in.

        I had no prior experience in design or digital art. I spent a weekend learning the main course content and was able to create one visual a day, and have been doing so till date.

        Explain Ideas Visually is honestly one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. The course covered a lot of topics that I didn’t know much about, from the tools and design techniques to creating compelling visuals that resonate with a large audience.
