A typical IDEO.org Brainstorm or synthesis session is a flurry of charts, drawings, cartoons, and words. Even though some people are naturally more visual and will express themselves easily through pictures, everyone can benefit from thinking visually. Not only does getting visual make ideas more tangible, it immediately helps clarify your thoughts to your team. Even a super low-resolution expression of an idea will help others understand and build upon it. And don’t limit your visual thinking to just pictures. Sculpt, build, collage, use anything that helps get your ideas out!
