Do You Need to Know How to Draw or Sketch to be a Graphic Designer?

The short answer is no, you don’t. But in truth this question requires a more complicated response. Plenty of graphic designers have gotten jobs without knowing how to draw at all. Nevertheless, learning how to draw or sketch can be invaluable for three big reasons.

  1. You have to be able to explain visual concepts and ideas to clients, yet their imagination might not work in the same way as yours does. Being able to quickly sketch out what’s in your head allows you and your client to make sure you’re both on the same page and will be satisfied with the ultimate results. Yes, you can get someone else to draw out concepts for you ahead of time or prepare images yourself on a computer, but then what happens if your client has feedback or you need to quickly present an alternative idea? The ability to pull out a sketch pad can then prove essential.
  2. Knowing how to draw can actually save you money in the graphic design world. If you want someone else to create an illustration for you, then you have to pay that person. People with exceptional drawing skills rarely work for free.
  3. Taking drawing and sketching classes at graphic design schools could make you a better graphic designer overall. As you develop your talent, you find yourself also developing a better eye for detail, balance, contrast, and perspective. It also gives you a better greater awareness of light and how the manipulation of light sources can alter an image. You’d be surprised how often that skill comes in handy in all types of graphic design.

    Great article - I guess with today’s modern technologies - everyone can achieve most things - as long as they put the work in. Working within the given environment is also a major bonus as you are surrounded by Graphic Designers at various levels - which will only aid your learning.

    Thank you for this article. I was not sure if I should pursue graphic design because my drawing skills are not as refined, but I’m trying online courses though.
