Great presentation this morning. In architecture we are not allowed to draw or provide “free” architectural sketches in our RFP submissions, but you made me re-think how we can deliver information to our readers using pictograms.

It’s always good to hear what people who read proposals are actually thinking! I went to the last event with RFP evaluators (it was a school district, health authority, and Translink) and found that very helpful as well.
