On this page you can find what clients had to say about Sketchy Solutions.

Barrett Browne – Senior Technical Manager (Equal Access International):

Filippo is a gifted visualizer, and has helped our international development project to capture key learning points for two of our annual strategy meetings. Each time, he listens attentively to lots of detailed information (given in both English and in French), and by the end of each day he produces a vivid, detailed, easy to follow visual representation of the day’s key points discussed. These visual guides serve as excellent recaps of the days events, and are also useful tools to share with external stakeholders on our project that can’t attend the annual strategy meetings. He is also very communicative and prompt. We have been very happy with the results and will certainly come back to him next time we need someone with his skill set!

Patricia Matzdorf – Senior Partnership and Project Manager (WWF Switzerland):

Effective visual communication an absolute must in today’s communication culture. Filippo’s scene-setting animations for our events or our project have offered a fresh way to introduce some of the complex topics which we work with in an accessible and creativemanner. It was a pleasure working with him to develop these videos. He is professional, creative and solutions oriented. I look forward to future collaborations.

Terri Creeden – Trainer and Facilitator (Creeden Coaching & Consulting):

As a trainer and facilitator, my professional collaborations are important and need to bring value to the events I run. Working with Filippo at Sketchy Solutions was a pleasure! His visual thinking is truly impressive. He is able to create graphics that communicate so much with highly appealing imagery, offering a variety of options to meet project requirements. He went above and beyond to ensure the results met our needs. Not only is he talented, he is also professional and enjoyable to collaborate with. I look forward to working with him again! 

Simon Tribelhorn – CEO (Liechtenstein Bankers Association):

Working with Filippo is always a huge pleasure. It is amazing how he understands to destill the various complex issues into a very useful and tangible overview. With his creative reporting style and his eye-capturing visualisation he makes every event a unique and memorable experience.
All the participants of our last Banking Congress were highly impressed by his work. Big thanks to Filippo for his visualisation of the results! We can highly recommend working with him and will for sure continue to do so in the future.

Dick Patton and Kati Najpoor-Schütte – Global CEO Practice Leaders (Egon Zehnder):

It was an absolute pleasure working with Filippo, not only was his work beautiful and a fantastic reminder of our creative journey during the 2 days, but moreover he amazed us with his ability to really understand and capture the content of our meeting. All the participants in the meeting were highly impressed with his work, and we would definitely recommend him. We would love to work with him again in the future. Thank you again Pippo!

Tandiwe Erlmann – Senior Project Manager (seecon):

We first started working with Pippo two years ago when he had just founded his company. His creativity, understanding of the subject matter and ideas immediately convinced us.
He did a full week of graphic recording for an SDC-funded workshop on circular economy in the water and sanitation sector (our biggest annual workshop). His capacity to capture the essence of discussions and workshop atmosphere not only had a positive impact on the outcome of the workshop but also allowed us to instantly share the results with participants and disseminate them online. 
Ever since his first gig with us, we have worked with him two more times and will definitely continue to do so in the future.

Alwin Kopse – Head International Affairs, Sustainable Development, Food Systems (Federal Office for Agriculture):

We worked with Sketchy Solutions during the Global Forum for Food and Agriculture in 2018 in Berlin. The collaboration with Filippo while preparing the panel discussion was very straight forward and to the point. His work during the event was fabulous and the resulting sketch said it all. His work will accompany us around the world. It serves both as a reminder of the discussions we had in Berlin and as a catalyzer for coming work. Thank you Filippo!

Amanda Crameri – Head of Division Higher Education (Movetia):

Working with Filippo has been a very interesting creative process. He could translate the many technical details that characterise our students’ mobility programme into images that were both fun and precise. The excellent result was ideal for the promotion of the Swiss-European Mobility Programme. The poster resulted so convincing that it even found a place in the office of Federal Councillor Johann N. Schneider-Ammann.

Niels Rot – Strategic Development (ETH Zürich):

At ETH we were working on a highly complex topic (mapping topics at the fringe of computer sciences) and engaged Pippo’s support to help us graphically record the four workshops. He did an excellent job capturing the core topics and support us with sensemaking, even though he is not a topic expert himself (something I was worried about before). We as well as the participants of the workshops were deeply impressed by the drawings and we still use them today to help us design next steps. We can highly recommend working with Pippo.

Ina Toegel – Professor of Leadership (IMD):

Working with Filippo was a dynamic and highly rewarding experience. He was flexible and responsive, visualizing on the spot the ideas of participants during group brainstorming sessions. It added great value and a fun spirit to the participants’ leadership journey at IMD. Thank you Filippo!

Irene Ragaller and Felix Falkner – Wissensvermittlung (Zürcher Hochschule der Künste – ZHdK)

In the arts, our students work mostly visually, and therefore we are always looking for ways of presenting information in a manner that is appealing and intuitive to them. With so complex a topic as the law, which is also hugely reliant on the written word, this is no mean feat. We are sure that Filippo’s visualisations will be a great help to them, and will bring the topic to their attention. Many thanks!

Ernst Bolliger – Workshop facilitator (EB Consult):

I had the chance to facilitate a workshop “Managing Conflict Risks? Opportunities for Extractive Industries?” at the Basel Peace Forum 2018. Based on two key inputs held by Philippe LeBillon and Hélène de Villiers, a group of about 25 participants shared experience, knowledge, and opinions about the role, chances, risks, and responsibilities of stakeholders of the extractive industries in conflict-prone areas. Swiss Peace expressed its wish to have the essentials of the inputs and discussion documented and visualized in an attractive form. The cooperation with Filippo Buzzini turned out to be a most appropriate answer to this challenge: He managed to visualize the key elements on two charts. The “green chart” contains the key inputs of the resource persons; the “yellow chart” presents as metaphoric picture of a bee-hive the contributions of the participants: “Honey to be consumed for managing future risks”.
Big thanks to Filippo for this memorable visualization of the results!

Audrey Frith – Director (Eurodesk Brussels Link):

Working with Filippo @Sketchysolutions was a great experience, we worked together ahead of the meeting to discuss about the topics on the table and plan the reporting style and approach. Filippo adapted to our needs and made a great job during the event. I recommend him to bring a dynamic and creative touch to your events!

Kristoffer Rasmussen – Co-Founder (Happy [Bern] Lab):

It was a pleasure to work with Filippo. He distilled many complex stories into a very tangible overview. That process was super helpful for us internally and also externally. His drawing is the first thing our guests see when they arrive and we use it weekly as a support for explaining our project and process. Please don’t underestimate the power of a visual overview.
