A Roadmap for Climate Resilience ~ NBCAI
Complex issues, such as climate change, are easier to understand when people see how their individual actions impact the big picture. For NBCAI (North Bay Climate Action Initiative) in Sonoma County, California, Christine made live graphic recordings at a Climate Adaptation Forum with community leaders. In discussions with the organizing team over the course of the following year, she distilled discoveries from the forum and additional input to create this overview of top 20 actions for Climate Resilience, along with a summary fact sheet and graphics for the the full Roadmap.
Visual Summary ~ America’s Promise Alliance
For America’s Promise Alliance, Christine created a visual summary based on content captured at three key events during the year of the organization’s 20th Anniversary.

Evolution of a Learning Organization ~ Pivot Learning Partners
WIth a 17-year history and two previous names, Pivot Learning Partners needed a visual to track and present comprehensively the organization’s history, major accomplishments, realms of work, and future directions. Christine designed this timeline, as a centerfold for their annual report and a stand-alone poster. She also designed the report and Pivot’s organizational identity and branding.
Mastercraft Juggling Wheel for Read to Write Books workshops
Christine uses visual approaches across disciplines. For Read to Write Books, a 9-month course that she developed to teach writing craft, she isolated 9 elements of fiction and designed the Master Craft Juggling Wheel to provides a quick reference for writers. A lively exploration of masterful fiction, Read to Write Books illuminates craft through close reading, annotations of novels, visuals, and exercises for becoming more skilled as writers and discerning as readers. The words on the pages of good books are excellent writing teachers—if we know how to learn from them. When we read to gain insight from accomplished authors, we improve technique, gather inspiration for crating good books, and enhance our appreciate of fiction.
