Ink Factory: Bucktown Pioneer

You talk. We draw. It's awesome.

A simple motto from Ink Factory describing the incredibly complex skill of graphic recording. Their visual recordings of live speaking events help folks from companies big and small retain more information. This small team of ink'd all-stars travel the globe, their client roster is deep, but they feel right at home in Bucktown.


Located a few block north of the 606 on Milwaukee Ave, Ink Factory's space is a perfect representation of the team's approach to their work. Light-hearted, creative, clever, and effective. Even the studio pup, Whisky, has his very own nook.
