The visual diary/sketchbook is perhaps the most prevalent best
practice artifact found across all design disciplines. Many designers
keep a visual diary/sketchbook with them at all times. They use it
to record and elaborate their ideas, to gather other people’s
ideas or artifacts of interest that may inspire future ideas, to â
€˜doodle’ half-formed thoughts, and to share ideas with
others by showing. The visual diary/sketchbook is particularly
valuable as it encourages its owners to develop a multitude of
ideas and choose between them, rather than to fixate on a single
idea.

Real progress in developing yourself as a designer will depend on
you frequently and habitually sketching out your ideas and their
variations, recording other people’s ideas you may see,
reflecting and choosing between these ideas, and then further
developing those ideas that seem promising. The visual
diary/sketchbook records all these, and carrying it with you at all
times will help you incorporate sketching and reflection into your
daily routines.
