Turn your research into a visual summary

Visual summaries are the format that we typically recommend for researchers who have qualitative data to work with. In essence, visual summaries are a blend between text and visuals to support that text and bring it to life.

A visual summary is for you if...

  • Your research contains qualitative data
  • Your findings can be presented in a creative way
  • Your findings can be communicated visually

Overall, the visual summary is less data heavy and more focused on the text and the narrative, with the visuals occupying more of a supporting role to stimulate the reader and keep them engaged. Use it to engage with policymakers, government bodies, end users, industry representatives and the media.


Turn your research into a visual summary

The visual summary is perfect dissemination tool for your qualitative research.

A visual summary is a visual document that displays your research findings in a clear and appealing way.

Visual summaries are one of our most popular visual products. They make you stand out from the crowd and are a fantastic dissemination tool. You will always leave a copy of your visual summary behind when you meet stakeholders interested in your research or send it as an attachment in an email before a meeting or conference call.
