Visual Strategy

Make the best use of visuals in your company story

Consider this. It takes a person 1/10th of a second to comprehend a visual scene, while the average time it takes to read 200-250 words is 60 seconds. If a person hears a piece of information, they will remember 10% of it three days later. If they are also presented with a relevant picture, they will remember 65% of the information.

Add to the equation that as humans we are wired to have an emotional reaction when we encounter photos with human faces. If you’ve read Corbae’s Branding page, you know that trust and loyalty are emotions ruled by the limbic brain.

When considering the above, retaining information, delivering trust and loyalty, add to that the astounding figures on how much better sites and social posts with images lead to conversion, and it is clear that investing in a visual strategy makes sound business sense.

Corbae begins a visual strategy process with assessing your message. What are you trying to communicate? What impression is your organization interested in leaving in the marketplace? Are the visuals your company is employing reinforcing that message? Where are the holes? What rubrics make sense to use in the future to assess visuals?
