About Ink Factory

We empower organizations to communicate visually

Co-founders Dusty, Lindsay, and Ryan combined their diverse backgrounds to create Ink Factory in 2011. Since then, Ink Factory has helped a vast array of organizations (from Fortune 100 companies to non-profits) bring their ideas to life with the help of visual note-taking.

Founded on a mighty mission

The methods we use to help businesses in every corner of the world are constantly evolving thanks to new technology, techniques, and thought-provoking creativity. But one thing remains constant–Our mission is to create visual experiences that inspire and engage.

Visual Notes for Racial Justice

Launched in 2020, Ink Factory’s Visual Notes for Racial Justice initiative provides free visual note-taking services to Black-owned businesses and non-profits that advocate for racial justice. Visual notes help these organizations tell their stories, inspire others to get involved, and achieve their goals. You talk. We draw. Together, we make change.

Each year, we commit a portion of revenue to providing these note-taking services to deserving organizations. In 2020 and 2021, we proudly dedicated 2% of revenue to this initiative.
