Audience members snap photos of the visual notes at Chicago Ideas

Ink Factory just wrapped up at Chicago Ideas, the world’s largest Ideas festival, where we captured visual notes at every speaker session. Read on for a behind-the-scenes look at the event and the impact of visual experiences.

Ink Factory is proud to have been a part of Chicago Ideas since the very beginning. Each year we create visual notes of every single talk and conversation. Talks from 60-90 minutes include topics like entrepreneurship, political issues, health, and innovation. The finished visual notes are then put on sale – and all proceeds go to Chicago Ideas!

Every year Ink Factory hosts a visual note-taking basics lab for both kids and adults. Participants dive in to the world of visual note-taking from listening to typography. Thanks to everyone who attended! Want to attend our lab next year? Becoming a member of Chicago Ideas is the best way to make sure you get access to all the best events before tickets sell out.

“I think what’s so cool about Ink Factory is that they provide an at-a-glance way to trigger all of the big ideas racing through your mind during any given event. It’s a powerful reminder to take action.”
