6 Online Tools for Visual Brainstorming

Landing a new project is exhilarating and exciting, unleashing a rush of ideas for how you want the results to look and what you need to do to get there.

In fact, such a flow of creativity can easily lead to an overwhelming jumble of concepts if you are new to the trade or don’t have a strict design methodology. One of the most successful ways to keep inspiration from turning into a fleeting thought or being blocked completely is to use visual brainstorming to capture ideas and concepts as they come to you.

What is Visual Brainstorming?

To quote UsabilityFirst, visual brainstorming is “the process of generating a variety of graphical alternatives to a visual design problem, such as generating thumbnail sketches for a screen layout or various alternatives of an icon to represent an abstract concept.” Often confused with brain mapping, successful visual brainstorming avoids words or explanations.

Benefits of Visual Brainstorming in Design

Visual brainstorming is used to formulate a creative concept, and collaborate or communicate an idea or creative concept where words would fail. It is a perfect solution when working with new subject matter, or with a client that doesn’t understand your proposals and emails.

How can we take the best of creative, critical and visual thinking? | Seavus DropMind® Blog | Mind Mapping Today | Scoop.it

Thinking is the basic activity of the human brain. Generally refers to any mental or intellectual activity involving an individual’s subjective consciousness. We know the meaning, we know the process. But how do we individually use it, do we make difference among separate types of thinking and do we know how to take advantage of them.


We often use creative, critical and visual thinking and brainstorming interchangeably. In order to develop our thinking techniques properly and use these different types of thinking most effectively, we need to make a difference among them and combine it appropriately.
So let’s look at what theory says:
Creative thinking is the merging of ideas which have not been merged before. Brainstorming is one form of creative thinking: it works by merging someone else’s ideas with your own to create a new one. You are using the ideas of others as a stimulus for your own.
Critical thinking is the process we use to reflect on assess and judge the assumption underlying our own and others ideas and efforts.
