More about The Drawing Board

New Yorker cartoons have been the standard of creative insight for 90+ years. We had a hunch there was something special about HOW they were made that juiced the cartoonists’ creativity. We did tons of research. We discovered we were wrong. It’s not “something” special. It’s EVERYTHING about the mental process—the playfulness, the visual metaphor. It catalyzes creative breakthroughs. And it can spark innovation in your business just as well. We have New Yorker cartoonists ready to show you how.

Steph Avalos-Bock
Assistant Director of Educational Programming

It was a joy to go on a private, behind-the-scenes tour led by professional cartoonists to learn about how they combine drawings, metaphors, and humor to bring simple, yet profound clarity to situations. It was even more fun to apply what we learned.
