Make Beautiful Visios

As an architect working across enterprise programmes I use Visio – a lot.  It has become one of the key tools used to communicate conceptual, logical and physical representations of solutions or visions or anything else I need to illustrate in a design capacity.  A consistent challenge is crafting the artifacts I produce to engage the audience and I certainly can’t underestimate the effectiveness of a pretty document – in fact I am sure there is some correlation between governance approvals of architecture and how good the design looks on the page!

Anyhoo, to help in this constant quest, I was made aware of http://networkdiagram101.com, a great site providing some simple tips to vastly improve the look and feel of visio content – use it, it’s great!
