ImageThink’s Holiday Gift Guide
December 20, 2011[ssba]
Still looking for a special something? Below is Nora’s list of gifts graphic recorders love to give and get, full of unique bags, great books and even a stylus brush. You’re sure to find some great gift for ideas for artists in your life.
Are you starring at a blank page, your pencil hovering hesitantly above? Maybe you know someone who wants to give their left brain a good creative jog? 642 Things to Draw solves these problems with by challenging readers and artists to visualize concepts and objects such as, “a broken toy, a saint, and first love.” I love to open my copy on a rainy day and expand my visual vocabularly.
Metro Card Belt Buckle
As New Yorkers, we know what it is like to try to juggle our graphic recording kits, rolls of paper and dig for our Metro Cards. This Retro Card Belt Buckle By Total Metal Resource New York is the perfect marriage of design and function.
I can’t crack open Indexed, with out marveling at the funny genus of Jessica Hagy, who uses simple charts and graphs to visualize complex, amusing, axioms. This tiny book should go directly into your favorite visual thinker’s stocking.
Our work as graphic recorders takes beyond New York and beyond the Atlantic Ocean. We are no strangers to the protocols, adventures, and hassels of travel.
Flight 101 in Carroll Gardens has stylish solutions to every travel headache.
This universal adapter ensures that if I mix up the sockets in Switzerland with the adapter in Germany, I won’t be left with a dead iphone. In bright pink, I won’t be likely to forget it in the hotel, either. A Lucha Libre luggage tag might just protect my bag from snoops at the TSA, if not, atleast I will be able to spot it in luggage claim!
We don’t just graphic record with markers and paper, we also create visual summaries on the iPad. The Nomad Brush: Paint Brush is a special stylus with wire bristles that acts just like a paintbrush on the surface of the ipad.
For all the meeting facilitators we know. The Novario Workshop Bag carries all the requiste supplies that a facilitator needs to conduct a creative, productive strategy session or workshop.
