All great ideas start with a sketch, and style is different for everyone. However, it is a common dialogue that depicts our imagination and ideas while helping us through the creative design process. A quick initial sketch is a great tool to communicate with our clients, helps us come to a result, and it is a universal journal that is understood and welcomed by all.
