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.
Our awesome clients

Why use visual note-taking?
Drawing is more than just eye-catching. Visual notes are more beneficial to our brains than regular notes.
Visuals stimulate the emotional centers of our brains.
Drawing information helps us understand it more clearly.
Pairing text with visuals helps you remember information.
We strive to learn continuously, embrace creativity, and encourage innovation–all so that we can create the best work possible for our clients.
Value Each Other
We make supporting each other a priority. We promote our team's wellness and collaborate generously with each other, our clients, and our community.
We take pride in having a culture that embraces fun. We find time to appreciate the wonderful work we get to do and the wonderful people we get to work with.
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, we proudly dedicated 2% of revenue to this initiative.
You talk. We draw. It’s sustainable! Ink Factory loves our planet and is committed to making sure we do our part to make sure it is around for a long time. That is why we place an emphasis on products and materials that are biodegradable, reusable, recyclable, and durable to withstand the test of time.
At Ink Factory, we're always open to finding talented illustrators, animators, visual note-takers, or someone looking to lend an administrative hand (no matter who you are or how you identify). If you have experience with information visualization, hand lettering, comics, or visual communication, a career in visual note-taking might be your next thing.
