Complexity made visual, beautiful & fun.

Nowadays, we're drowning in information. luckily, words aren't our only option.
let's talk in pictures. Kanai can be your visual interpreter.

 
 
 

A comic book about Climate Change that will make you smile. That's the plan.

Climate change is....depressingly complex.
is there another way to deal with it? kanai certainly thinks so.

Visual products

There are all kinds of reasons for going visual. Images and words combined stimulate both the analytic and synthesizing abilities of the brain. Images are powerful magnets for our memory.  Especially if they are emotionally charged.
And last but not least: images are a lot of fun!

 
 

Illustrations, Cartoons & comics

An overload of text makes reports disappear into a drawer. Quick illustrations and cartoons are perfect to lighten the mood & explain difficult and tough concepts. Especially if humor is involved!

graphic recording & facilitation

The red thread of your epic event or workshop, neatly condensed into a powerful graphic, that's what a graphic recording is. And you actually want to read it afterwards! Great on social media.

explainer videos

Getting your idea, pitch or story across can be a challenge. Animations combine image, text and sound for triple impact! A simple, colorful and unique animation technique.

About Kanai

My name is Anabella Meijer. Kanai is my alter ego

Even though you're not always supposed to, I like to make things fun & accessible. Especially knowledge that's boring or plain depressing, but that we can't do without.

So I use visuals and fun to tackle problems as broad as making it fun to read Terms & Conditions on a website, making reports of projects will not end up in a drawer, and now, making a comic book on climate change that will make people smile.

And I know what I'm talking about! Since early 2015 I've been specializing in climate change communication & psychology. Also, I get regular compliments on my own visual (dutch) terms & conditions. No, really, people read them for fun.

On a more personal note: a few years ago I turned myself from a depressed jobless architect into someone who harnesses the strength of fun and creativity to meet life's challenges. Spoiler: comics were involved...

If you're in the Netherlands, you could come over to Haarlem for a cup of coffee. If that's too far away, skype is good option.
