How to use the Maps

The Manual Thinking offer a generous surface to visualize and share thoughts, ideas and opinions of various persons. The maps are foldable, so all your created work is easy to bring along, archive and/or retake. All maps feature a millimeter grid to help to situate and align content, and an indexing cover to archive your map. Here you can indicate the title, name and date of the map, so you can easily relocate the map.

The Manual Thinking come in 3 different sizes:

Original Large:

Large foldable maps of approximately 100 cm by 70cm, on which teams can comfortably work together. Generous surface for thorough visualization and presentation of any topic.


Medium sized maps of approximately 65 by 45 cm, ideal for reduced settings such as school or home desks, where 1-2 persons can work on a more concentrated map.


Pocket sized maps, 45 by 33 cm for individual use such as daily planning or mapping on the go. The pocket map is the convenient equivalent of the bar napkin where you sketch your ideas on, labels are not used.

Depending on the final purpose of the map, the labels can be organized in various forms over the surface of the map. These are the most common shapes of maps: Radial (mindmapping, exploring subjects) & Clouds (arranging ideas or inputs by families).

- Horizontal (arranging by timeline) & Vertical (prioritizing subjects or projects)

- Axes (evaluating ideas) & Matrix (evaluating ideas, exploring subjects)

- Grid (recollecting ideas or inputs, organization)
