Folks We Admire: Tim Gunn

Folks We Admire: Tim Gunn

June 8, 2016

Tim Gunn is a mentor on fashion reality show Project Runway, bestselling author, activist, consultant, actor, etc… but I admire him also because he is a gentleman. I don’t mean he plays a gentleman on TV; he is a true gentleman. I had the pleasure of meeting him a few years ago & I was moved by how welcoming, friendly & polite he was. Impeccably dressed, even off screen, and very, very tall – though I would describe him as a gentle giant. Hearing his journey of being a fish-out-of-water in his youth, to finding his passion at art school, […]

ImageThink Tips For Drawing Icons

ImageThink Tips For Drawing Icons

February 8, 2016

Written By: Derrick Dent, graphic recorder at ImageThink (@imagethink) My creative background is one that is heavily influenced by comics and cartooning. The way that I draw fits perfectly into my role as graphic recorder for ImageThink, where we create simplified visuals to communicate complex ideas. Here are some tips for drawing icons. Being economic with your lines is something that allows for speed and lends itself to a signature style, not dissimilar from handwriting. There’s a reason that you can tell a Bill Watterson drawing from a mile away. Also, as Scott McCloud mentions in Understanding Comics, simplicity is a […]

Ringing in 2016 with Our Newest Graphic Recorders!

Ringing in 2016 with Our Newest Graphic Recorders!

January 5, 2016

ImageThink graphic recording is happy to welcome Ona Rygelis and Derrick Dent to the team! They are our newest graphic recorders and spent the day researching the history of graphic recording. They found that taking sketch notes helped them retain, prioritize, and use the information better in the creation of their images. They both chose nonlinear compositions and made use of containers and arrows. Most importantly, they learned a lot and had fun while doing it! Interested in ImageThink? Visit our Services page for more information or drop us a line at info@imagethink.net to learn how we may support your next event!

Happy 4th of July, Here is How We Love to Celebrate It

July 3, 2015

Happy 4th of July weekend! We at ImageThink are taking a few days away from world traveling and graphic recording. Here are a few ways we love to celebrate this holiday, from coast to coast.

Family Time: taking a sail is a low-stress and nostalgic way to enjoy a day out on the water, whether you are on the east coast or the west coast. The […]

ImageThink Pro Bono Graphic Recording with SKIP of New York

February 20, 2015

Each year, ImageThink employees are encouraged to seek out a pro bono job. This year, our graphic recorder, James Lake, chose SKIP of New York. In a nutshell, SKIP (Sick Kids [Need] Involved People) helps New York’s sickest kids. SKIP acts as a free medical concierge connecting medically fragile children with the services and equipment they need to get well and live at home rather than in hospitals or institutions. SKIP, established in 1983, does not charge for its services, never turns a child away and it saves approximately $50 million in public expense annually. But most importantly, SKIP helps over […]

2014 was a busy year for ImageThink. Our team of Graphic Recorders traveled across 6 countries to create visual notes at over 220 engagements.

At public events, industry leaders discussed topics spanning from personal genomics, cyber security, to climate change and cultural diversity. We created this slideshare to reflect the biggest ideas from this year’s public conferences, not only to continue the conversation but also to create a lasting impression of what […]
