Representation and Diversity in Graphic Recording

June 27, 2016

Within the past few years, there has been a resurgence of conversations, panels, and initiatives focused towards diversity and everything that falls under that term’s umbrella. “Diversity” is a term that, in the context of organizations and institutions, covers a number of issues such as workplace personnel and leadership, cultivating an inclusive culture, and searching for talent from underrepresented demographic pools. This is equally important in diversity in art. We’ll focus on this in terms of graphic recording and media. When we talk about diversity in art, a number of questions may arise in terms of WHO is being shown, HOW they are being shown, and WHAT is […]

Walking It Off

Walking It Off

May 9, 2016

When I’m not on site recording, I spend a lot of time at ImageThink HQ tending to in-house studio duties. It’s no mystery that working at a desk for an extended period that it takes a bit of a toll, since we are constrained to a seated, crouched position for a long time. So we have standing desks, treadmill desks, and I’m gonna go out on a limb and assume hoverboard desks in the world providing thrills (and a fire hazard?) for the 9 to 5 children at heart.  Even with those measures, there’s still the matter of the work […]

ImageThink Tips For Drawing Icons

February 8, 2016

Written By: Derrick Dent, graphic recorder at ImageThink (@imagethink) My creative background is one that is heavily influenced by comics and cartooning. The way that I draw fits perfectly into my role as graphic recorder for ImageThink, where we create simplified visuals to communicate complex ideas. Here are some tips for drawing icons. Being economic with your lines is something that allows for speed and lends itself to a signature style, not dissimilar from handwriting. There’s a reason that you can tell a Bill Watterson drawing from a mile away. Also, as Scott McCloud mentions in Understanding Comics, simplicity is a […]

Ringing in 2016 with Our Newest Graphic Recorders!

Ringing in 2016 with Our Newest Graphic Recorders!

January 5, 2016

ImageThink graphic recording is happy to welcome Ona Rygelis and Derrick Dent to the team! They are our newest graphic recorders and spent the day researching the history of graphic recording. They found that taking sketch notes helped them retain, prioritize, and use the information better in the creation of their images. They both chose nonlinear compositions and made use of containers and arrows. Most importantly, they learned a lot and had fun while doing it! Interested in ImageThink?
