200 Page PDF Sketchbook Of TED 2008

March 21, 2008

TED BigVizIf you head over to the TED blog, they have a link to a 200 page PDF of sketches and idea maps from all the TED 2008 presenters. Drawn by artists David Sibbet & Kevin Richards, the PDF interprets the presentations in such a way that illustrates new connections not easily seen when just listening to the speakers.

According to Autodesk, the PDF is a compilation of:

700 spontaneous sketches of the presenters’ ideas using Autodesk Sketchbook Pro software running on Wacom Cintiq tablets and rendered on a Perceptive Pixel multi-touch display. These tools illustrate the power of interactive visualization to present the big picture to foster insight and communicate ideas visually, central principles of design innovation“.

It makes for an interesting visual exploration.
