Last week I got my first dot grid book (& my first moleskine) and I loved it so much I thought I would share this great resource with you.

This dot grid book is great for sketching and finalising logo designs but I think pictures describe it better than words so here are a few pictures of what your missing out on…

You can buy the book from Behance Outfitter for USD$14 or if in Australia, from NoteMaker for $27.95.

Enjoy!

Perfect for typography and logo design, the lightness of the grid allows clear scanning.

Do you own a dot grid or moleskine book? What are your opinions?

    Handy little book that, but I would expect to pay half what you paid for it!

    This is a great article I have never used either but I do want to get them.

  6. Preston Lee Says:

    I’ve been using light graphing paper to achieve the same effect. Cheaper but not near as good. I think i’ll switch over. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Holly Mack Says:

    A really good idea! Thanks and keep up the good work :)

    A great tool for logo design and typography. I bookmarked this page as well as other others. I’ll be sure to credit your site once I get mines up :)

    I kept hearing about “moleskins” I think I might get my own copy now. Seems like a good thing to have when sketching out Ideas.

  11. Toby Cummings Says:

    This looks like a fantastic alternative the regular grid paper and napkins that I’ve been using for sketching. ;-)

  12. Rob Russo Says:

    Sweet! Nice detailed photos convinced me. (Officially added to my wish list.)

    For sketching, doodling or even writing — whatever the use — I’ve always hated those pesky lines. I’ll have to stock up on these.

  13. frebro Says:

    Yeah, I use the Behance-models for drawing icons and UI-elements. Love them!

  14. Brad D Says:

    Yeah, I am getting one! I wanted something with structure but actual grid lines are distracting and somewhat intimidating. This is brilliant.

    Moleskine needs to do this.

  15. Soul Says:

    Hmmm….considering I’m a broke@ss, I think I’ll be making my own, but thanks!

  16. RCKY Says:

    Did a similar on my own… really useful!

  17. Matthew Says:

    Ah, I need to pick one of those up! :D

  21. Stefan Vervoort Says:

    Just ordered mine! :) I also got the Pocket notebook! http://www.creativesoutfitter......otebook/12

  22. Aetoric Design Says:

    I don’t really have the resources for a moleskin at the moment. Besides, I’ve still got lots of pages in this dollar-store-quality sketchbook I bought last semester.

  23. daphne Says:

    Wow this would be a great book for typography and even modern simplistic art. Though I’d be sorely tempted to find a picture in the dots… =)

  24. Raphael Says:

    I choose my Moleskine. I have my schoolbag system and it’s a grid and spiral bindings don’t go with grids very well. xoxo, Raphael :)

  25. Outlet Says:

    Yes, Moleskine 4ever ;)

  26. g3niuz Says:
