Design Workshop
thumbnail examples  

Satisfy both sides of your brain: Before your draw, gather your thoughts.

  • Make a list of images, words, shapes, etc that relate to the subject.
  • Write any thoughts on the subject
  • Ask yourself questions about the audience and their likes and dislikes.
  • Be curious about the mood the design may convey. Explore ideas freely.

When your left-brain has been given its chance to be useful, it’ll leave you alone while you draw. Your right-brain will take over now—let your creativity flow. Right-brain activity is exciting and relaxing at the same time.

Pencil is more fluid than the mouse! Enjoy sketching as a way to loosen up. As you practice doing thumbnails, you get better at it. It’s a muscle you can make buff.
