“Drawing is vision on paper.”
When a client contacts Patrick Knowles Designs and they describe their ideal space, a picture forms in my head. It is from there that the basic hand sketches begin and through techniques like line weight, hatching and shading, I can begin to evaluate design concepts before moving into the more technical components.
It is simply design creativity in its purest form.
Of course, one might ask why, in a modern day and age, when using technology is the go-to for almost everything, if there is still an importance to sketching for the new generation whose tech use is second nature.
I cannot explain it better than this quote, stated by a contributor on the Vectorworks site who said,
“ You will find architects crawling all over Italy taking photographs. You will also find some with a pencil and sketch pad. To capture Michelangelo’s David, you can take a photograph or sketch it. Which do you think would lead to a greater understanding of the sculpture?”
We’re ready to put pencil to paper and start the next head-turning design. Will it be for you?
