Strategic Visualization

Transform ideas into pictures and pictures into action!

How it works

Capture and communicate your most valuable insights with beautiful and informative visual storytelling.

ImageThink is well known for its on-site visual note taking. Our team also co-creates elegant, eye-popping strategic visualizations with clients in our studio, allowing for more consideration, collaboration, and iteration.

Strategic visualizations are ideal for teams that want more controlled, polished representations of their best ideas and innovations. Illustrated assets like hand-drawn sketchnotes, infographics, roadmaps, marketing materials, and animations help to map organizational structures and transitions, chart new strategies, and celebrate corporate goals and culture.

Visual storytelling can be a powerful way to instantly show people what you do, how you do it, and why; all in less time than a perfectly practiced elevator pitch! Plus, select iconography can be isolated and repurposed to have a big impact in digital, print, and more.

Commemorate and Celebrate

Looking for the perfect way to celebrate your team, honor a stakeholder, or memorialize major moments? Whether creating an illustrated biography, mapping organizational history, or crafting team-wide social listening murals, visualization is a meaningful way to honor those who mean the most: your team. Plus, we can isolate any icon for printing on a variety of merchandise or gifts.

It was an absolute pleasure working with the ImageThink team from start to finish! The live graphic recording of our breakout discussions added an extremely engaging (and fun!) element to our virtual workshop.

Nora’s visualization at the end was amazing – keep doing that for future customer interactions, because I’ve never seen that before and was a cool way to end the session.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is visual storytelling?

Visual storytelling is the practice of conveying information or narrative using pictures and words. In our work, ImageThink graphic recorders use visual mnemonic devices, colorful characters, and hierarchical text to make sure your big ideas are memorialized in a beautiful, shareable fashion.

What are some advantages of visual storytelling?

65% percent of the population are visual learners, and the human brain processes images faster than text or audio inputs. ImageThink’s sketchnotes, infographics, time lapse videos, and animations leverage this biological fact to help make your message more memorable and engaging.

How can you use strategic illustration to market your brand?

By illustrating your insights and areas of expertise, ImageThink’s team of graphic recorders can provide you with internal and external marketing collateral. The assets we create can be printed to physical media, shared digitally, or animated. Any way you want to share your ideas, we can help!
