    How is that so organized all on a whiteboard? Amazing that nothing was horribly smudged.
  • birgerking 5y

    Hi vahneszah, I had the whole image in my mind before I started to sketch it. To qualify this statement I have to admit it was my 2nd or 3rd attempt to paint the sketch.
    Meanwhile I've create newer sketches. It seems that I'm developing some kind of visual mapping tool for social media strategy. I don't know, let's see what happens.

    Is this a parody of social media startup bullshit? Please tell me it's a parody...
  • birgerking 3y

    NicolasK17 Sorry, no parody, no startup bullshit. In 2008/2009 it was a starting point to map out impact of social media in business. Today most of this stuff is already happening.

    Hallo Birgerking, die Grafik gefällt mir sehr gut, deswegen habe ich sie (in Schwarz/Weiß) auf meiner Seite verwendet. Solltest du das nicht wollen, schreib mir einfach eine PM. Ich werde die Grafik dann selbstverständlich sofort entfernen.

    Gruß und danke, Marius !

    Marius Brede Hallo Markus, das geht so in Ordnung. :)

    That board is ridiculous haha! Love it. THe board in my office is like that, of course, when you work in a Chicago PR agency, notes and ideas are posted everywhere.
