Since 1973, Lance Wyman has logged his daily output. Nothing is ever thrown away: everything is logged with meticulous care. These include: working drawings for logos; detailed specifications for complex urban wayfinding systems; sketches for typefaces and layouts; notes to himself and records of conversations; details of his travel arrangements; color swatches; photographic reference and other forms of printed ephemera.
"The reason I started keeping log books," says Lance Wyman, "was that I wanted a record of what I was doing. It’s my way of keeping in touch with the complexity of the design projects that I’m working on."
All the pages of Lance Wyman’s "designlogs" have been photographed, edited and made into a beautifully designed 872pp book, now available on Kickstarter.
