Illustration is another skill I offer my clients. It’s also a side pleasure because I’m an inveterate doodler. From a young age, all my school notes include some sort of drawing. My skills come naturally in that my father excels at technical drawing and my mother is a visual artist.
Drawing comes in handy while designing. For example, I almost always sketch out logo ideas first, finding that it frees up my brain to explore avenues I might not otherwise, surrounded (as it were) by machinery and applications. I’m comfortable with many varieties of illustration: digital, traditional—it’s all good.
