She's best known for her large-scale live content visualizations, and she is also the leader of The Doodle Revolution, a growing effort to debunk the myth that doodling is a distraction. Using common sense, experience and neuroscience, Sunni is proving that to doodle is to ignite your whole mind. Look for her 2nd book, The Doodle Revolution: Unlock the Power to Think Differently, in September 2012. Sunni's work has been featured on the BBC, CNN, Boing Boing, The Washington Post, Fast Company (coming in at #56 on the 100 Most Creative People in Business List and #5 on the 10 Most Creative People on Twitter list), Shape Magazine, Net Magazine UK, A List Apart and the Arab News. Sunni has presented on graphic facilitation, Gamestorming and innovation, and visual thinking and the brain at events like SXSW, the IDEA Conference, the TED Conference, the HOW Conference, Duarte Design, the NY School of Visual Arts and her living room. She considers herself to be a hilarious speaker and she loves designing interactive experiences for the audience. As for her consultancy, sunnibrown.com, it specializes in visual thinking, participatory gaming, content design and storytelling.
Visual literacy, storytelling, subatomic reality, how the mind learns, survival strategies for getting through life and the development of higher E.Q.
VISUAL literacy may become as important as literacy in the future. The re-uptake of our native visual abilities is one of the best things we can do in service to learning and solving really messy problems.
Emotional intelligence, whole-brain learning, perception vs. reality, the definition of sanity and your dog.
Because I don't suffer from an overdose of humility, most people know what I'm good at. The only exception: singing.
My company was invited to participate as visual thinkers and graphic facilitators at TED 2009, TEDActive 2011 and TED Global 2011 and I was a speaker at Long Beach in 2011. I and was thrilled to be there, of course, and it was simultaneously the most nerve-wracking experience of all time. A disproportionate amount of our best future is seeded at this incredible conference. Freak OUT!
