8 Ways To Start ImageThinking
March 13, 2017
At ImageThink, we’re passionate about helping you picture your big ideas.
Whether you’re setting your quarterly strategy, running a conference, or telling your brand story at a tradeshow, we’re here to help your team align and make your content shine with visual thinking. Read on to learn 8 ways to collaborate with our graphic recorders and graphic facilitators to make the most of your next event.
1) Capture Your Content; And Your Audience’s Attention
You know the feeling. It’s the most interesting session of the day, but after hours of hearing people speak you just can’t focus. Your mind wanders, you miss key points, and once the session’s over, you’re at a bit of a loss.
At ImageThink, we’re committed to helping you overcome information ennui by engaging your audience through the power of visuals and graphic facilitation. Our graphic recorders are skilled at distilling complex ideas into clear visual records of what’s been said, and tools to inspire action in the future. The real-time meeting graphics help your audience engage with your content through multiple channels: visual, auditory, and kinetic.
What does that mean for you? Not only is your content captured—your audience’s attention is, too.
2) Ditch The PowerPoint
Everyone knows the phrase “death by powerpoint.” So why are you still using one?
Instead of the same old stack of slides, use our graphic recording as an evolving speaking tool. We encourage our clients to treat the boards we create as an interactive element of the presentation, referring and reacting to the visuals that we create.
Even better? Because it’s visualized in a single image rather than multiple slides, your audience will see both the discrete details of your presentation, and the big picture, all at once.
3) Give Your Presentation The IMAX Treatment with Graphic Facilitation
Looking for a sleek, forward-thinking alternative to traditional graphic recording? Digital graphic recording gives your words and ideas presence in a large venue, projecting visual summaries to large audiences at a cinematic scale.
Presented on theater-sized displays or on 180 screens, digital graphic recording is the perfect fit when visibility and impact are essential.

4) Who Said Galleries Were Just For Museums?
So while you sip on a well deserved end-of-day cocktail, why not stroll through a gallery of the day’s boards? Bringing them all together gives you and your team a chance to reflect on what you’ve accomplished, and begin setting the stage for next steps of visual thinking.
5) Let The Space Tell Your Story
When planning your next conference, remember that the space you create sets the tone for the sessions. Large scale infographic murals tell your brand story and set the stage for engaging keynotes and inspired interactive sessions.
6) Give Your Audience Something To Tweet About
Social media has quickly become one of—if not the—most important channels of communication between brands and their consumer base. But with a deluge of content clogging everyone’s social feeds, it can be hard to stand out.
Simply branding your graphic recordings and meeting graphics with company handles and hashtags is a great way to let your event audience do some of the work for you. As people snap photos of the completed boards and tweet them out, you’ll reach new audiences and build a buzz for your company organically.
7) Capture Diverse Insights
Whether it’s a panel of 10 or a room of 1,000, our graphic recorders are adept at ensuring that all the voices in the room are represented, so you leave your session with a well-rounded view of your topic.
8) Give Keynote Speakers a Lasting Impact
The flipside of keeping your audience interested is keeping your messaging clear. Graphic recording gives keynote presentations a chance to resonate and reverberate long after the session concludes.
