I believe research and sketching before doing electronic work is ALWAYS important. As much as I used to hate when professors didn’t allow me to immedately work electronically, I’ve come to terms with that work is best created when it has a bit of planning behind it. Not only that, but when people showcase their work, I LOVE seeing the sketches before they started the electronic work, actually, that’s sometimes my favorite part. It gives the audience to dive into the head and heart of the designer and see what they were thinking when they created their work- for this, their work gets a lot of personality. Now, whenever I’m designing, I’m researching, sketching, and planning before I even begin to open Illustrator, InDesign, or Photoshop. It’s important for making your designs relevant, up-to-date, and clean. An architect wouldn’t construct a building without research and drawing it out first, would they?
