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 […]

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 […]

ImageThinker's Pro Wrestling Road Not Taken

ImageThinker’s Pro Wrestling Road Not Taken

January 19, 2016

Written by: James Lake, Graphic Recorder at ImageThink (@imagethink) At ImageThink’s off-site this year, Heather Willems asked me what career path I would have chosen if I wasn’t graphic recording for ImageThink: Pro Wrestler! This may come as a shock, especially to anyone that has seen me in person, but it’s true. I’ve been a fan of sports entertainment (mainly WWE) since I was about 8 years old, and over the years my friend Lucas and I have gone to live events, autograph signings, and watched countless wrestling shows. If I did not love drawing as much as I do, I would […]

Folks We Admire: Tracy Chou

December 16, 2015

Tracy Chou, head software engineer at Pinterest, has an impressive resume.  She began her work in the tech field by interning at Facebook and Google, before taking a leading role at Quora, the site that promises its users “the best answer to any question.” Her list of achievements, however, includes one more major bullet point: making public the massive imbalance of men to women in Silicon Valley.  The tech world is overwhelmingly male, with many companies having only around 10-20% of their workforce represented by women. After the October 2013 Grace Hopper Celebration (named after the great female American computer scientist), where she found others sharing […]
