Why are Sketching and Lettering Important?

Sketching is an important aspect of the development and communication of a design. There are many instances where explaination or modification of a design is almost impossible without the ability to make simple and rapid freehand sketches.

Lettering is an important skill to develop because it affects the use and interpretation of notes. dimensions, and specifications that supplement all drawings.
