Sketching is an excellent way to quickly explore concepts for a design project. It can help you develop ideas with basic layouts or outlines, and accelerate client communication and approval before working on the details.
Sketching plays different roles in the design process, depending on whether you're designing websites, brand logos, illustrations, products, or other designs. For example, product designers may spend a lot of time sketching; when designing a piece of furniture, a pair of sneakers, or a bike, the idea doesn't start on a computer, it starts on a piece of paper or with your iPad and Apple Pencil.
Regardless of your skill level, you can start developing the design concept from sketching. Start exploring and visualizing your ideas by sketching out simple shapes and elements. After that, you can start on the compositions or layouts. Once you've decided which direction you want to go, refine the sketches and add detailed drawings to complete your work.
