Glimpses Into My Notebook (Book #3)

8/9/2013 marked the end of my 4th 3rd notebook (made a false announcement online, sorry).

Thought this came by sooner than I expected, but after taking a look back at my last notebook glimpses post, which happened almost 2 years ago, I realize that time just seem to fly past faster on the things that one pay little attention to. Indeed, I haven’t invested as much on this notebook as I did before—fewer elaborate drawings and less time spent on designing each page. The style of my note-taking has changed overtime. With more tasks piling up, I only take down things that are essential to each project.

Here are few glimpses into the life of my 3rd notebook:

Some of these pages are from actual projects, which I tried to include the final rendition corresponding to each, some are random ideas, and some are projects that never came to be.

  1. looks like we got similar thought process. my sketch book looks just like yours, except my ideas aren’t as awesome, and unfortunately i just don’t have enough time to translate sketch to digital. super inspiring though. makes me want to get to it.

    1. Everyone seems to be short of supply of time nowadays. Get at it! I’m excited to see what ideas you have to execute!
