It’s been a while since we’ve featured a sketchbook like Michael DiTullo’s Analog Dreams, but once we started looking through it, how could we not? This is not just anyone’s sketchbook. As we dug into Michael’s website, we discovered that this Nike Inc/Converse design director received his BFA in Industrial Design from the Rhode Island School of Design, and studied design at The Cleveland Institute of Art and in Milan, Italy. He has worked on some of the top brands in the world and leads workshops on rapid visualization and visual thinking for creative companies and design institutes. No surprise, but Michael has won awards too numerous to mention.
Do take a look at his website to see how he’s had a hand (or foot) in Nike and Converse shoes … you’ve heard of Air Jordans, right? Heck, you could be sporting a Michael DiTullo item at this very moment. Love his Core77 sketch video. No magic. Worth watching.
He created his book in BookSmart, used the grid background and our scotch tape borders, and boy, do his sketches look great.
Congrats on making Book of the Week, Michael!
