The frameworks in this series are very simple, but they convey a lot of information. The size of the bars suggests a pyramid, which is universally understood to convey hierarchies. The bars are connected in the center, which suggests connectivity and flow. The frameworks themselves imply a closed set of steps or activities. A semitransparent directional arrow can be added (as in the series example) to indicate whether the flow is bottom up or top down. You can also add numbers/letters to help identify the flow direction. If the frameworks are used to show a simple interconnectedness, omit the arrow.
The frameworks are only one field, which makes them very easy to format and use. There are two versions: v1 is full page and v2 is half page.
Refer to the tutorial for more ideas about formatting and use.
