Manual Thinking is a tool for organizing thoughts, ideas and projects in a simple and direct way.
Note and arrange
Manual Thinking is a combination of blank foldable maps and removable labels of various sizes and colors. The labels invite to abbreviate ideas in keywords and sketches. The maps offer a large support to organize the labels on, visualizing the content in its context.
example: Take notes at school or a in meeting on the Manual Thinking labels, to organize them on maps!
The Manual Thinking foldable maps offer a large surface to visualize and communicate thoughts, ideas and projects. They can be used as a foldable blackboard, easy to archive and take along!
Organizing your information is easy!
Create a map in 3 steps:
1. Note on the removable labels
2. Arrange the labels on a map
3. Connect the labels
To make your map more visual and aesthetical, you can print images from your computer on the Manual Thinking labels. The sheets of labels are suitable for use with any domestic printer. You can download the templates here in pdf format.
Hands-on organization and creativity! Take scissors and gluesticks to cut and paste any visual material to illustrate your map. Use markers to let your images stand out and link the content.
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!
