Bret Victor is a good example of a communicator that is excellent at distillation, e.g. his posts Media for Thinking the Unthinkable and Learnable Programming. I think his works score very high on the accessibility factor (see the RAIN framework).
Thanks for describing your process! 🙂

If we can make authoring of explorable explanations (examples, description) more effective, I think that would be a better approach than video and images.
Heidi Grant Halvorson’s book ”Reinforcements” on some psychology of this topic is good: https://www.goodreads.com/en/book/show/39085801-reinforcements
Thanks for indirectly reminding me to go back and read my notes on it! 🙂
From reading the others’ answers I also made the connection to Sparkwave’s excellent ”10 Conditions for Change”: https://www.sparkwave.tech/conditions-for-change/
