Why sketch – 100 sketches over 5 years

Here at Seedhouse we believe in expressive and extensive creative thinking, and so we sketch.

We doodle… we draw… we explore. Our sketchbooks become a personal materialization of our thoughts. The fuller they become the more we cherish them. It seems old school, and maybe it is, but it works for us.

Unless limited by time, we have a process at Seedhouse… the first creative review for any project is done in that oh-so-old-fashioned “analog” platform called the thumbnail.

We find that good ideas (the kind that move markets and build brands) are best considered and evaluated with a quick, loose sketch… one that depends on the strength of the concept rather than the deftness of the execution.

Old-school, maybe. Good for clients? Definitely.

We find ourselves to love the old school artistry of illustration. It brings an artist’s touch and therefore, a unique feeling to each brand. Our illustration styles range from hand-drawn to watercolor to computer vector art. We wield the pencil, brush or mouse to authentically express a brand’s identity.

And this is the stuff we can really geek out on!
