How Does ImageThink Do It?
Our graphic recorders work on foam core boards and whiteboards using markers, or digitally shared through an onsite AV system. Participants can interact with our visual strategists and the art first hand.
Ideal for distributed teams, a visual strategist can join onsite or online to stream the digital visual note taking and ideation to participants around the globe, at home or in another office.
For fully remote teams, get the full digital experience of graphic recording performed over any virtual meeting platform. Visuals can be the spotlight, or shared during breaks.

Frequently Asked Questions
Research shows that humans are wired to think and communicate visually. People can ideate, iterate, and innovate better when working visually.
Graphic recording is much more than graphic design or illustration. While drawing skill, composition and visual fluency are required, graphic recorders and graphic facilitators are not simply artists in meetings.
During a brainstorm or strategy session, a skilled graphic recorder will synthesize all of the group’s contributions into a coherent visual while revealing connections between ideas that might otherwise have gone unnoticed. This promotes creative thinking, collaboration and deeper engagement by capturing everyone’s contributions and creating a literal collective vision.
A meeting facilitator will help moderate discussions, keep the agenda on track and, ideally, provide the spark to drive productive conversation. But some meetings need more than a pen and notepad. Working with a graphic facilitator to produce visual notes helps to keep the team on track, inspire attendees, and memorialize discussions. A graphic facilitator might employ pre-populated templates like mind-maps or customer journeys to guide a discussion and ensure that crucial topics are addressed.
Unlike many other professional services and consultants, there is no formal educational training or certifications for graphic recording. Our visual strategists and graphic facilitators undergo rigorous training over several months. Our creative development and client services teams ensure that every job is appropriately scoped and that your practitioner will be well prepared and versed in your company’s unique needs.
Graphic recording should always be tailored to the specific event and its unique objectives, which can vary considerably. ImageThink visual strategists can provide graphic recording in any environment, from large scale, high-visibility conferences, to internal brainstorming and strategy sessions, to the most confidential patient advocacy sessions.
ImageThink visual strategists will work with you during the planning phases of your agenda. They will offer expert guidance on how best to integrate their visuals into your meeting in a way that supports your meeting objectives, rather than serving as a distraction. Our services also come with a full complement of pre and post event support to ensure you get the value you’re paying for.
