Visual Storytelling

International Book's Day

Our favorite books about visual storytelling


April 23rd is the international book's day... The perfect moment to celebrate books about visual thinking, created or co-created by our very own Drawify-artists. 

  • Presto sketching: The Magic of Simple Drawing for Brilliant Product Thinking and Design – Ben Crothers (Drawifier)
  • Start to Draw – Axelle Vanquaillie (Founder of Drawify)
  • Visualifezation - Prowpannarai Mallikamarl (Drawifier)
  • The World of Visual Facilitation – Jeroen Blisjie, Tim Hamons, Rachel S. Smith. With the collaboration of the following Drawifiers in our team:
    • Mara Callaert
    • Martine Vanremoortele
    • Jill Greenbaum
    • Heather Martinez

And... because we all got inspired by fellow visual thinkers, our Drawify-artists made a selection of must-read books in the field of (visual) storytelling.
We created a TOP 12 list of books that, without any doubt, will inspire you.
