Often we’re critical about the end design, but behind the scenes a lot of process go to work, and one of which is sketching. Sketching is the skeleton of the idea that was came to be originally as a thought. Sometimes a client needs a unique brand new logo or typeface that is more convenient to draw on the paper and after that scan it into Photoshop or Illustrator.
Sketching means a lot for graphic designers, even if the final design is supposed to be placed on the web.
