New Sun Rising’s work spans multiple programs with a wide variety of participants. Our challenge was finding a framework and developing shared language that our program managers could use to communicate effectively. Emily’s graphic facilitation techniques creatively helped us work through our model. By deeply understanding the journey of our clients across all programs, we were able to land on a process infographic which makes sense for New Sun Rising – and those we serve.

"The task of redefining who I was as an artist felt very overwhelming. It was essential that I had a facilitated process so I could retain my focus… The visuals helped to simplify my thinking process and I can refer back to them when I need a nudge. I now know what I want to say, how to say it and who to say it to."
