Having struggled for a long time to find an appropriate name that describes what I do, I had to invent a new word - I now call myself a ‘facillustrator’. The word is a combination of the two key things I do – Faciltation and Illustration. Working closely with the client I facilitate creative interactions that help them to think visually. I then work with them to co-create richly detailed pictures that clearly articulate their unique situations and objectives.
