Visual Tools

Getting some people together? Visual tools can enable you to think from a different angle. We’ve created a bunch of remixable artwork using Visual Thinkery’s fabulous remixer machine, which can come in useful for ice-breakers, event registration, and badge pressing.

Here are a few examples of previous custom visual tools. Most of the initial ideas have emerged from Visual Thinkery’s 10 ideas process, which means that we explore multiple directions collaboratively using conversation.
