This past year, we’ve stayed super busy at Taylor Design. Managing multiple projects, challenges, and deadlines daily can really drain your creativity. In order to help wake my brain up on Mondays (in addition to the mug of coffee), I spend just a minute or so before our weekly status meeting to quickly sketch a simple title design in my lined notebook for that week’s project list. Nothing fancy—it’s just a fast, fun way to kick-off my creative thinking for the week, and I urge you to give it a whirl. Check out this quick flip-through of one of my notebooks for an example (cartoon gnomes and all).
