How do you visualize what you do? What are your favorite existing
visualizations (like the ones posted recently) that are out in the
world that you like to reference.

I'm in the process of putting together the picture of the services
my team will provide and I'm looking for some inspiration!

IA' .

One visualization I have referenced for years to explain what we do
(literally, almost a decade now) is on Nathan Shedroff's site.

Everyone's nomenclature is different for the phases and activities,
and as the industry has evolved I think we can agree some steps are
missing. But the fact that it shows so many of the puzzle pieces in
context to others is great, and%u2014bonus%u2014it doesn't freak
clients out. This visualization has inspired me many times over the
years.

These diagrams by Stephen Anderson (poetpainter) speak to me ...

The Fundamentals of Experience Design puts into perspective the
people we're designing for, the activities they are trying to do and
the context in which they do those activites.

And my other favourite from Stephen depicts how People, Context,
Activities translate into an experience that build's on
functionality (useful) through to meaningful (has personal
significance).
