You are developing design ideas in the office, explaining a concept to a shipyard or showing a client how the secret room in their library works. How do you communicate your ideas ?
Sketching, drawing, doodling- whatever you may call it, is one of the most simple, basic forms of communication. Young children begin before they can write and in some cases, before they can talk. As we get older, we develop more varied ways of communicating and often lose this ability. It develops into a skill driven by desire, rather than a need in daily life. That desire may be for studying, learning or for a profession.
Design as a profession and by its very nature, requires a pencil to paper process. As a designer, you are designing, creating something that has never been before, something totally unique. It’s part of the designing process, refining the idea and ultimately, creating a window for others into your imagination.
