Hi, I’m drawing again.
Usually, a designer need not be artistic. But having the skill to sketch, or design sketch, an idea is highly valued. Being able to quickly design sketch a layout for a client could win the job.
My design sketching abilities having been wavering lately. I decided to start sketching in general… first the basics.
Sometimes starting, or this case restarting at the basics provides a solid foundation. I picked up a drawing book. It kind of reminds me of design foundations from college.
When I was in college, we spent an entire semester just drawing shapes, patterns, and forms. It was tedious to say the least, almost eight years later, we definitely need the keep these skills up to par.
