Often we’re critical about the end design, but behind the scenes a lot of process go to work, and one of which is sketching. Sketching is the skeleton of the idea that was came to be originally as a thought. Sometimes a client needs a unique brand new logo or typeface that is more convenient to draw on the paper and after that scan it into Photoshop or Illustrator.

Sketching means a lot for graphic designers, even if the final design is supposed to be placed on the web. Most of creatives prefer to spend hours with pencil before translating the design into reality with editing software. Even a typeface starts with a tiny sketch, in fact, every great type starts with a single line.

Today I’d like to show the beauty of typography and lettering through the creation process. I’ve put together 20 inspiring examples of typography old-style sketches for your inspiration.
