Who Run the World?  At ImageThink, we love the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), and we are thrilled they invited our founder and global creativity authority, Nora Herting, to appear as one of the Featured Speakers at this year’s National Conference & Business Fair.  Nora’s (and ImageThink’s) story is an incredible one that began with $500, a shared bank account, and a hunch that visual thinking and graphic recording had legs.

Thinking Visually, at The New School’s Design x Convergence Conference

Thinking Visually, at The New School’s Design x Convergence Conference

May 15, 2018

Shedding Light On Strategic Design: Graphic Recording at Parsons’ DESIGNxCONVERGENCE Conference  It’s the great irony of strategic design that when it works well—when it communicates clearly and effectively—it hardly even registers.

Most people only notice them when they are unclear, when they don’t work.   But at ImageThink, our graphic recorders are constantly thinking about how visuals can be used to enhance communication, clarify challenges, and identify solutions. We’re the design nerds who notice the subway map and the font on the highway markers.   Last week’s Strategic Design Conference, hosted by Parsons School of Design, shed light on what it means […]

Outside The Box Results Require A Creative Approach; Graphic Facilitation Workshops Can Help The best leaders recognize that creativity is a crucial asset for productivity and long term success.
