Artist | Content Creator
I signed up for the Visual Metaphors workshop and coaching to develop my visual thinking skills. Determined to learn new skills and take my digital visual communication beyond the cliché metaphors and a way to stand out in online communication using his animation technique.
Dario Paniagua's style of illustrations really resonated with me from the moment I saw his work. My mission was to upskill and learn how to incorporate PIGs into my work as a Digital Community Manager and Content Creator.
The workshop was professionally presented and structured into bite-size pieces with exercises and informative interviews to watch and experiment with. I absolutely loved the mash-up exercises.
As for the coaching sessions. Wow, what a gift! There is nothing more valuable than insightful and constructive feedback. Dario is very generous in sharing his experience and adapting to your needs to help you grow as a visual thinker. His feedback has helped me take my work to the next level at a very fast pace. My first PiGs was a big success at work and left my client wanting more. I'm excited to create more and stretch the boundaries of this skill each and every time.
Dario Paniagua is a gifted storyteller and masterful coach.
I highly recommend Dario’s Metaphors Membership offer for anyone interested in transforming their maps from ordinary to extraordinary with the introduction of distinctive visuals designed to grab your audience’s attention.
The course content was both practical and valuable but, in my opinion, Dario’s constructive critiques and personalized feedback were priceless and an added bonus!
