An absolute bloody nightmare
If you work in the creative department of an advertising agency in 2008 you will be hard pushed to find either a member of your team who can remember the old process or somebody who can handle a pencil and can draw - but I bet everyone is pretty savvy with a Mac, Photoshop, Quark and InDesign. Suddenly everyone with a computer, a mouse and a piece of software could do “creative” stuff, which is morally superb - but has proven to be, functionally and qualitatively speaking, an absolute bloody...Link.
My thoughts exactly. If you can not draw with pen and ink don't call yourself a graphic designer. Relying on technology too heavily weakens the essence of visual communications.
Maybe that is why Moleskine Sketchbooks are becoming widely embraced... the need for analog art and letters.
