Communicating Ideas

For a long time Bella didn't feel her skills in communicating ideas were up to much. Then, after doing some classes in comic book design, Bella realized she had found an amazing new way to convey and share her ideas.

Communicating ideas comes down to being able to explain your thoughts so that they make perfect sense. Of course, this is easier said than done.

There are many ways of communicating ideas, but some of the foundational skills to support doing so effectively include empathy, breaking down concepts, being able to read and perceive a situation, and the ability to receive and synthesize feedback. Skills such as verbal communication, art direction, and design are also key.
