Using the power of visual storytelling to illuminate ideas, we spark innovation, guide design thinking, and facilitate strategy development.

Alphachimp is lead by Peter Durand and provides a cluster of inter-related services in the area of visual learning, problem-solving, and innovation. 

We do a lot of different things on a daily basis:

Services range from online training and onsite workshops in graphic recording and facilitation or a series of animated whiteboard videos.

Our primary work is the creation of learning experiences that retain the joy and humanity of teaching and working with other primates (including people). 

We teach individuals and teams how to use graphic facilitation skills to explore complex systems and make better decisions.

Each project is a little different. We work with our clients and partners to craft something that fits their business needs or social goals. 

We like working with change agents and social innovators looking for creative ways to share ideas and connect with audiences.
