Draw Your Big Idea


Draw Your Big Idea graphic recording book

We’re living in a visual age. Today, research shows images speak louder than words—and they help us think. Visual note-taking boosts memory retention by nearly 30 percent, and opens creative pathways, strengthens focus, and inspires self-expression.  

At ImageThink, we believe the benefits of thinking in images shouldn’t be limited to business—anyone who wants to turn their thoughts into action and dreams into reality now can.

Our founders’ newly published graphic recording book—Draw Your Big Idea—features 100-plus exercises to help you brainstorm, refine and execute ideas in your home, design studio, and office. With this visual thinking workbook, you’ll learn to visualize your ideas, transform your creative processes and beat your creative block—for good!
