Drawing and sketching is critical to the creative process

25.11.13

A good link with our work at MARK Product for the importance of education in making designers is highlighted in this article about the learning process for ‘iGod’ Jony Ive – sighting his father, a craftsman and pioneer of design technology education, as instrumental in his design process. 

Given access to the workshops at the college where his father taught when they were closed would allow Jony Ive to do anything he wanted with his father’s support. The only condition was that he had to draw by hand what they planned to make. Mike Ive described the act of “drawing and sketching, talking and discussing” as critical in the creative process and advocated risk-taking and a conscious acceptance that designers my not “know it all”.
