Fixed information, like the head title of your map, can be written directly on the map; with outlines you can let it stand out. Write or draw the rest of your content on labels, so you can move them around as you please. When all the information has its place you can connect the inputs. Don’t forget to write a title, name and/or date on the cover before folding!
The 31st of January 2012 we held a creativity workshop in our studio, where a multilingual group of participants had the opportunity to get familiarized with Manual Thinking and several idea generation methods, while Vicenç from Visual13 was recording footage to create the Manual Thinking video. An intensive day resulting in lots of new ideas and contacts. Thanks to all the participants!
