How Valuable Are Old-School/Traditional Design Skills Today?

Posted in Commentary, Design Matters, LinkedIn by ayanaairakan on 2009/05/22

Inspired by LinkedIn’s Communication Arts Group’s discussion forum post:”When you learned to work on a computer, did you take classes or teach yourself?”, I want to pose the question: How valuable are traditonal design skills like thumbnailing (preliminary sketches and verbalization), and marker and paper comping? Are they still being used today? Are they being taught in design programs today? Join me in the discussion.
