To Sketch or Not to Sketch
I came across the above article written by Erik Ford and thought it was a good reminder of what the design process should include whether you have a real client, are creating something for yourself or doing it for a class. The class I’m taking right now requires I create a CD album cover. In Week 2, the assignment called for some thumbnails…people are throwing up mock-ups they’ve sloppily put together in Photoshop and I am super intimidated because all I have are some sketches on graph paper. However, a few more people submitted hand drawn sketches and I felt better. I don’t do graphic design for a living, but I think most people would agree with me that this step is an important one not to be overlooked.
