David Chang Talks Tech in Food

August 25, 2015

At SXSW Interactive, restauranteur and author David Chang spoke with Matt Buchanan about his experience combining tech and dining. Today, almost all companies are tech companies, even if that is not their predominant industry.

He also talked about collecting customer data to enhance the customer’s dining experience. He discussed his new app Maple, which is a “lunchbox on demand” of the best food delivered to your door. Logistics, meal options and price were fine-tuned in a trial and error tech process. David, the self proclaimed “Normavore”, loves normal […]

ImageThink Graphic Recording Tools: Acrylic Markers

August 3, 2015

Most of our graphic recording work is done with water based ink markers, but some jobs call for something a bit more heavy duty. These Montana acrylic markers work wonders on dry walls and other surfaces, and have the same chisel tip that our regular markers do. We used these markers at the recently concluded Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in Orlando, Florida.  We drew on a free-standing wall that was custom-built in the Social Hub of the convention during the kick-off of the week-long convention. The drawing process went smoothly after a few trials. A few things we noticed that […]

Our setting was also remarkable as attendees, speakers, and ImageThink […]
