Tofu Creatives is a design firm dedicated to harnessing creativity to effectively communicate complex issues. Our work focuses on visualizing development topics such as climate change, human rights, global health and the sustainable development goals. We provide visual solutions to your design needs. This includes visual summaries, animated explainer videos, web design, infographics, and creative workshops on visual storytelling.
We visually capture the shared ideas and insights of the event while it is happening. At the end of the session, we show the audience a visual walk-through synthesis of the event. This visual tool allows the audience to have a “big picture” summary of key takeaways, and to visually absorb the content of the session. It is an engaging method for wide audiences in conferences, workshops, meetings, and presentations. Organizers often use it for sharing on social media, to be included in reports, and also to be printed
as posters when needed.
