What is Flatland Academy?

Within the Flatland Academy we help people to develop themselves in understanding, practicing and applying the principles of Visual Design Thinking. Making things visual combined with a design approach is the ideal way to create an understanding of abstract and complex notions, both for yourself and for others.

With our training and in-company programs we help individuals, teams and organisations to adapt a new way of working. By using Visual Design Thinking you can:

  • Make more sense; get grip, an overview and understanding on complex subjects
  • Make more speed; work more effectively, collaborate better and experience better processes
  • Make more fun; with a hands-on approach we make it into and enjoyable and energetic learning experience

Make more sense, more speed, more fun!

For who?

For everyone who works together; in teams, with colleagues or clients. For CEO’s, entrepreneurs, managers, researchers, content developers, engineers and consultants.

The power of Visual Design Thinking works on strategic, tactical and operational level.
