SXSWi 2016 Recap: Brene Brown + Amanda Enayati

April 8, 2016

Brene Brown Keynote ImageThink’s graphic recordings have made SXSW more engaging for 6 years. We have enjoyed scribing nearly 350 talks, and Brene Brown was the best keynote we have EVER heard! This year, a big theme throughout the conference was storytelling. Brene Brown went through different stages of this internal and external form of communication that truly engaged the audience. When you choose courage over comfort, you sign up to fall. Vulnerability is not a weakness, it is an accurate measure of courage. Writing your first crummy draft When you own your own story, you can write your own ending Since creating the above sketchnote, […]

ImageThinker's Pro Wrestling Road Not Taken

ImageThinker’s Pro Wrestling Road Not Taken

January 19, 2016

Written by: James Lake, Graphic Recorder at ImageThink (@imagethink) At ImageThink’s off-site this year, Heather Willems asked me what career path I would have chosen if I wasn’t graphic recording for ImageThink: Pro Wrestler! This may come as a shock, especially to anyone that has seen me in person, but it’s true. I’ve been a fan of sports entertainment (mainly WWE) since I was about 8 years old, and over the years my friend Lucas and I have gone to live events, autograph signings, and watched countless wrestling shows. If I did not love drawing as much as I do, I would […]

David Chang Talks Tech in Food

August 25, 2015

At SXSW Interactive, restauranteur and author David Chang spoke with Matt Buchanan about his experience combining tech and dining. Today, almost all companies are tech companies, even if that is not their predominant industry. Tech has changed everything, but David Chang believes its value for dining should be ease for experimentation.

Logistics, meal options and price were fine-tuned in a trial and error tech process. David, the self proclaimed “Normavore”, loves normal […]

ImageThink Graphic Recording UFC talk at SXSW

April 10, 2015

The image above captures the UFC: Women Breaking Ground Inside the Octagon SXSWi talk  graphic recorded by ImageThink’s very own James Lake. James is a huge UFC fan, and among the speakers Ronda Rousey and Jessica Eye are his heroes. It was a fascinating talk and there were a lot of great quotes that were captured on the board. The key message to take away was about the cultural change that has occurred since Ronda Rousey’s notoriety. Female beauty representations shifted from sickly/emaciated to strong, healthy, and confident, and it has had a positive effect on all genders in UFC’s audience and the general […]
