7 Takeaways from an Immersive ImageThink Visual Workshop

7 Takeaways from an Immersive ImageThink Visual Workshop

August 7, 2019

1. Graphic Recording Is More (Neuro) Science Than Art. ImageThink workshops aren’t just about teaching your team how to draw, or why we use whiteboards instead of powerpoint. (We’ll cover that as well, but it’s not all we’ll talk about.) On a fundamental level, our workshops fully immerse attendees in the why of working graphically. Humans are visual animals, wired to process information optically. For instance, 30% of our neurons are devoted to visual inputs, as opposed to 8% for tactile inputs and 3% for auditory input. Visuals are wired into our very survival instincts, which explains why we see […]

Design and Deliver Right, With Graphic Facilitation

December 10, 2018

Uncover your client’s real design needs with visual thinking When it comes to good design, many clients and consumers assume that execution is the hardest part. After all, the end result is what they normally interface with, so why would they consider anything else? But whether you’re a designer of physical products like vacuum cleaners, or something less tangible like marketing strategies, you know that when it comes to designing for a client base, manufacturing the final product is only the tip of a much larger iceberg. Hiding behind that last stage is a long process of research and ideation […]

ImageThink has hundreds of conferences and tradeshows and under our belt, and those engagements cover a wide range of industries and subjects, from tech, to entertainment, to marketing, to social media, to entertainment.

Defeat Summer FOMO With Graphic Recording

July 30, 2018

Fear Of Missing Out? Graphic Recording Can Help.  As we swing into peak vacation season, those stretching sunny days, it’s hard not to feel like no matter how we spend our time, there’s…something else we could be doing that’s even better.

July 12, 2018

Creativity, Passion, and the Entrepreneurial Spirit Name any business that has changed the world in the past ten years, and you’ll find a common core. While they might address different customer needs with different products and services, they overlap in the passion their founders brought to bear in their formation, and the energy that still pulses through them today. Whenever we create a graphic recording for folks like Jeff Bezos or Bill Gates, we are struck as much by the personal enthusiasm they bring to their work as we are by their intelligence or business savvy.   At ImageThink, we […]

July 3, 2018

With Independence Day around the corner, we asked our teammates at ImageThink to ponder what independence meant to them.

June 11, 2018

The Way Of The Graphic Recorder  As graphic recorders, ImageThinkers are a unique species of visual artists, bathing in the limelight a bit as we support everything from keynotes to brainstorm sessions. When the sessions wrap, it’s not uncommon for attendees to ask how we do what we do—listening, synthesizing, and drawing to create infographic murals in real time. Is it a born ability, or a learned skill?   The quick answer is: we have a lot of practice and supportive colleagues to help us learn the trade. While most of our graphic recorders have a background in fine art or illustration, the bigger thing we look […]
