Sketchbook Project: Done!

It’s like a road trip, but with sketchbooks. Finally! I enrolled into The Sketchbook Project as part of my design process for my MA project. I found it motivating to have a blank page, a theme and a deadline. I tried to fill in the sketchbook with ideas/concepts/visual material about emergence, reality, technology and design.…
