I watched an interesting video about Penrose Patterns on Veritasium’s YouTube page this morning. It inspired me to create this fun Visio diagram!
I frequently have the need to get text into separate boxes in Visio. And often I need those boxes to have some sort of incremented series, such as 1, 2, 3, or A, B, C. I’ve built some SmartShapes to help ease my pain, and I’m sharing them with you today!

Visio People Shapes are very popular on this web site, and I just found an excuse to create some more!
In the video, he shows us How to Draw Faces, using a humorously mathematical approach.
The technique translated quite well into a Visio SmartShape, which you can download here and use to add feeling and emotion to your diagrams!
