Chicago Ideas Week brings hundreds of the world’s brightest thought leaders together to inspire, connect, and activate the city of Chicago and beyond. Catalyst Ranch is thrilled to be partnering with Ink Factory to present an Ideas Week Lab about Graphic Recording on October 13!



The Ink Factory founders have over 25 years of combined graphic recording knowledge. These resourceful, creative, funny, intelligent, thoughtful folks will help you, your company, or your client to break free from normal business meetings and old school notetaking. By capturing your conversations in an image, Ink Factory ensures that you will you get the most out of your meeting, helping you to retain information, generate ideas, and engage your listeners. The visuals that Graphic Recorders create are a combination of text and images that represent thoughts, concepts, key messages and strategic visions. Like a storyboard or a snapshot, this visual record will help you remember and understand the messages more completely. As they say, “At Ink Factory, you talk. We draw. It’s awesome.™”
