This week, we have our incredibly talented Graphic Recorder: Yao Xiao! Her background is in illustration, which is an essential part of what makes her Graphic Recording so unique. Her work is bold and whimsical. Our newest Graphic Recorder, James Lake, regarded his dual scribing with Yao to be a critical progress point in his training.
Yao’s favorite film is Blade Runner. It is a remarkable work of science fiction in every way: production design, costumes, music (by Vangelis), and the script! It is based on the Philip K. Dick story “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?”. There are many complex themes and ideas that are presented in such an entertaining way, which is also the goal of our work at ImageThink.
Yao has traveled the country far and wide, and continues to impress our clients and us. She is also one of the most thoughtful and positive people you will ever meet! Outside of ImageThink, she has illustrated for Katy Perry, Wall Street Journal, Time Magazine, Businessweek, National Geographic (and more!) on her site.
