A bubble map is a brainstorming diagram. It’s made up of one central circle that branches out into an array of connected ideas.

To paint a clearer picture, here’s a simple bubble map example. Imagine you need to come up with all the best things about pizza. You’d place “pizza” in the center bubble, then surround it with bubbles full of attributes—cheesy, delicious, perfect-for-parties, and so on.

While you’ll probably use your bubble map for something more pertinent, you should at least get the gist (and a craving for pizza) from this imaginary scenario.

Bubble maps make it easy to see all the qualities or details associated with a central bubble which can be an object or concept. You start with your main idea in the middle, then surround it with related words.

Because bubble maps rely on a single shape and a familiar format, they make the content of a brainstorming session super digestible—both in the moment and after the fact. The simplicity of the bubble map allows you to use it for anything from telling a story to developing a new product.

Making a bubble map graphic organizer is a breeze. Simply start with your main idea in the middle, and create a new bubble nearby for each new idea. Connect each secondary circle to the primary bubble with a line, and you’re all set.

If you’re bursting with ideas and time is of the essence, try starting with a bubble map creator from FigJam. With drag-and-drop shapes and connectors, helpful widgets, and bubble map examples at your fingertips, you’ll have everyone bubbling when they see how amazing your finished product looks.
