What We Do

Innovate and thrive with ‘ImageThinking’

 From your organization’s purpose, or conference speakers’ stories, to your company’s restructure,
new strategy or training program
, for example, we’ll capture and communicate the essence in pictures
so you can put your biggest ideas into action.

Listening deeply to what’s being said – in meetings, events,workshops and
on social media – we visually transcribe and share key points using graphic recording,
visual facilitation, business sketchnotes, interactive murals and much more.
We call this ‘ImageThinking’ – and it goes far beyond beautiful imagery.

Because when ideas surface and crystallize in the way only ‘ImageThinking’ allows, they become
currency.

Big ideas lead to innovation, and innovation leads to new ways of working —

and vastly better business results, revenues and brand reputations.

 

What is Graphic Recording?

Graphic recording is redrawing all the rules about meetings. This powerful method
unleashes innovation in organizations and fuels growth by using words and images to
capture and communicate big ideas.

Works With Us

  • “ImageThink has helped us visualize future marketing campaign initiatives,” he says. “The greatest benefit is being able to go back to the visual board to jog your memory. After sitting in a three-day meeting, lots of information is lost. Not so with ImageThink on board.”
