“A picture is worth a thousand words” and “every picture tells a story” are heavily used in the spheres of journalism and social media. In the world of design, images have a whole new meaning. The images used to describe an idea that is still only imagined can be the deciding factor in whether or not a project will become a reality. Graphics are the tool that enable a designer to get ideas into the open, they are the tools that get people excited.
Hand sketches have always served as the strongest expression of what is envisioned for a design. Today’s computer generated graphics build on the power of hand graphics by turning a 2D drawing into a more understandable 3D image. These images tell a story that help the viewer imagine the full potential of a site, neighborhood or city.
