Do you dream of starting your own Designer sketchbook?
Here are 21 useful tips to help you make your designs stand out above the rest!
During one of my recent trips to Spain,
I met Antonio who is one of the students of my online course Sketch Like The Pros.
Antonio did show me one-to-one his sketchbook, and he generously accepted to share with all of us 21 drawing tips to build a super cool designer sketchbook. 🙂 !
It will give you some inspiration if you wonder what to draw in your sketchbook, which is great if you are a beginner.
What do designers use sketchbooks for?
A sketchbook is great to compile your research.
I recommend you bring them for job interviews
or Design school applications to share further your ideas.
Hand sketching sketchbooks are very well appreciated in complement to your Designer portfolio.
Remember, it doesn’t aim to be perfect – it should be rough and authentic.
The recruiter will appreciate your authenticity,
and transparency to show your private research.
It is a great way to better know your personality and the creative thinking system you have.
Feel free to like, share, and leave your questions and comments below the video!
Antonio and/or I will be more than happy to answer you.
Keep dreaming BIG to achieve BIG !!
PS: I am now writing at the bar of the airport hotel Ibis Madrid.
Tomorrow early morning I fly to Tokyo, Japan!
I will take plenty of new inspiration for the blog, drawing tutorials, and creative content.
Btw, as a designer, I recommend you to travel or study/work abroad so you will keep thinking out of the box and learning from other cultures.
For example, did you know that at Adidas,
designers do have 1 trip per year to travel in a city of the world to feed their imagination of new ideas?
