As a designer, you can probably relate to the power that a process sketch provides. It’s a loose way to quickly stream ideas out of your consciousness and onto paper without the complications of mouse clicks or digital barriers. Here you can problem solve differently, explore options swiftly and generate tons of different concepts that you can later sift through.

Sketching can also be key for early client communication. Whether you’re working on logos, illustrations or a website wireframe, these initial sketches will help you and your client decide on a direction before you drift too deep down the rabbit hole.

In the past, we’ve published an eye opening-article about the process sketches of 11 famous logos. Today, we’re turning towards our own designer community to see their creative process and how they achieve that final WOW factor.
