What is an Invisible Sketch?

Everyone shares their polished work, but rarely do you see the countless hours, research and drafts that went into creating that work. We want to appreciate the hidden journey.

We’re looking to see preliminary idea sketches, either personal or professional, for a project that excites you. The sketch doesn’t have to be new, the only requirement is that it is an original piece of work created by you using Concepts App.

Follow the directions below to participate!


How to Enter

1. Post an original sketch with hashtags.

Post an original, behind-the-scenes project sketch or sketches that you created in Concepts on Instagram. Use the hashtags #InvisibleSketch, #ConceptsApp and #Contest - all three hashtags are required, please check your spelling! One project per entry. If you include multiple sketches for the same project, please keep them to the same post.

2. Include a short story.

In the caption, tell us the main idea and story behind your sketch or project. What is the purpose for your project? Who does it impact? How is your creative solution unique?

3. Check your Direct Messages.
