A visual thinker is in essence a storyteller. As you create your visuals you are in some respects telling a story about your concepts, ideas and about the solutions to the problems you face. Storytelling is therefore a critical skill that we must all develop if we desire to become great visual thinkers. 

Storytelling is also relevant when communicating your message to others. However, in this context it’s not so much about telling stories, it’s rather about learning how to communicate these stories using the most ideal visual thinking tools, elements and techniques.
