Essential Elements of Graphic Facilitation

Essential Elements of Graphic Facilitation

February 12, 2018

    Graphic facilitation has the power to energize and focus meetings through meaningful visual support. Visualizing a More Effective Meeting The terms “graphic recording” and “graphic facilitation” are often used interchangeably, but there are some key distinctions to be made between the two. Whereas the former involves capturing conversation in visuals, the latter employs visual tools to actively structure and lead the conversation. Both employ a similar skillset—real time synthesis of information, drawing, and visual communication—and graphic facilitation requires a level of experience that builds on graphic recording as a foundation. At ImageThink, over a decade of experience in […]

What Is Graphic Recording? A Quick Guide

What Is Graphic Recording? A Quick Guide

December 21, 2017

What Is Graphic Recording? Graphic recording is the real-time translation of conversations or presentations into text and pictures. Graphic recorders do three things simultaneously: they listen for key ideas, synthesize them, and document them in visual form.  Oftentimes captured with marker on large scale boards or paper, graphic recording gives meeting and conference attendees an opportunity to absorb content on a visual level. An experienced graphic recorder uses visual facilitation to reinforce the speaker’s content, clarify complex problems, and organize collective ideas. The end result is a visual map of key insights that can be reflected on and shared post […]

Happy Holidays, from ImageThink!

Happy Holidays, from ImageThink!

December 4, 2017

Moving into the new year together The leaves have turned, it’s getting chilly, and our graphic recorders are packing extra layers for their trips across the country.  As winter arrives and the quarter wraps up, it is time to reflect on the year’s achievements and the people who have made them possible.   If you’re lucky, you ENJOY working with those people that are achieving successes along side you!  At ImageThink we believe that curiosity, flexibility and integrity breed the quality relationships needed for an empathetic and supportive company culture. That means more than an annual holiday party. Like any relationship, it takes continual attention and cultivation.   So what makes for a healthy team […]
