On Thursday March 13th we held an open house to welcome friends of XPLANE to our new Amsterdam office, located at Herengracht 124-128. We will hold Visual Thinking School here on a quarterly basis.

The following day, consultant and associate creative director, Matt Morasky led a full-day designer training in Amsterdam. Longtime XPLANErs from our design, consulting, business development, and program management teams attended, as well as designers who recently joined our team of contractors in Amsterdam.


We worked playfully and collaboratively, combining a series of individual and group exercises with critiques and presentations.  Under Matt’s guidance we covered a rich range of topics including drawing best practices, live sketching, working as a designer-consultant duo, visualizing complex projects, approaches to visual storytelling and more.
