Unit 2: Drawing Folio

In this unit, we practiced observational and visualization drawing.

Observational drawing is useful for the define and enquire phase of the design process because it allows you to gather and illustrate initial ideas and prepare them for further development.

We practiced observational drawings using two methods. The first was fast sketching, where we had 10-20 seconds to sketch each object. In the second activity, we familiarized ourselves with pen, pencil, and color pencil to draw glassware, silverware, and fruits.


The biggest challenge with visualization drawing is translating the image from your head onto paper because it’s difficult to create an exact replica.
For the visualization part of the unit, we sketched and finalized our ideas on logos for ISB’s 40th anniversary.


  1. Hi Stephanie, excellent reflection. I really hope you develop/submit your ISB logo concept(s) – let me know if I can help out!

  2. Your observational drawings are really good. The avocado jumps off the page, almost looks edible. Great work!
