Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

The best sketches visualize ideas through good, compelling form; without substance, the form is empty—and without form, the substance has no voice. Sketches need to transfer information and interpret complex information into definable chunks or messages. How they are visualized depends as much on personal aesthetics as on experience.
The rule of thumb is to develop sketches in a straightforward manner while allowing them to be expressive. A few years ago, a Carnegie Mellon design student named Anna Carey coined the term “freshture” in the context of a first-year drawing class. Her insightful, pithy term seemed to sum up the qualities of good sketches the class was describing—fresh and gestural.  Freshness or crisp qualities to strokes, so that they look like they are held in tension, make sketches appear more kinetic. Letting  gesture influence mark-making by purposefully missing outlines and overdrawing in key areas adds another quality. Said another way, good sketches are accurate and precise in structure and message but rough in an expressive way. This approach allows some flexibility in the reading of the sketch and takes the formality and rigid qualities away to make the drawing more visually accessible. Keeping “freshture” in mind may help to ensure that a sketch reads clearly as a sketch and is not misinterpreted as a final drawing or concrete idea.

I have a fairly strong art library; I live in a rural area and have to teach myself. This book is a great addition to anyone who is interested in communicating visually. Rather than focusing on HOW to draw, the primary focus of this book is (implicitly) WHY to draw. It does not give ideas on what to draw (which is at least suggested by its title). Instead, it is concerned with HOW to communicate your ideas visually, effectively, and efficiently. If you''re looking for HOW to draw in an extremely effective way, try Robertson''s and Bertling''s "How to Draw: drawing and sketching objects and environments from your imagination." Between it and "Rapid Viz", you have the two best "how to draw" books I''ve found in the last ten years - and they''re both available from Amazon. "Drawing Ideas" is the perfect companion volume to these two books; in my opinion, this triad - Drawing Ideas, Rapid Viz, and How to Draw - make up a complete art library. All that''s left is paper, pencil, and practice . . . good sketching to you!

Really great sketching book. Quite a bit past the Dan Roam level simple stuff, but has good explanations and development. Better than some really fancy sketching books intended for professional designers. This has that too, but in a simpler, more practical way. Also covers a broad variety of sketching including diagrams, presentations, etc. Starts from basics to more complex sketching.

I am a third year interior design student and I wish I found this book sooner, it helps with techniques for drawing conceptually, diagrams etc... I really love this book and am glad I bought it. I use it in my design studio to help me try out new drawing techniques for diagrams! Honestly, this is the best book to give any design student even as a gift. So glad a friend recommended it to me!

Again the book is great lots of great info but the kindle version which is priced similarly is no where near as engaging as the real thing. Yes I have both and I wish I could sell my digital version.

Great content. Love the read and illustrations provide great perspective. But the binding was already coming unglued after page 100. But maybe the book isn''t meant to be opened flat on a table.

enough in terms of faculties view point. More finished version of each topic would make this book better. Illustrations are well chosen but

This is a good book if you''re already quite accomplished. I think it falls a bit between two stools. There are brief ''revision'' bits (a drawing ''boot camp'') which are a bit too short. Then there''s a lot of ''advice'' which really is just that, rather than ''teaching''. Perhaps 3 stars is a bit hard - it is a good book - but there are much more focussed books out there if you want a ''how to''.

This book is a good grounding for product design sketching. It was particularly useful in showing how to create good layouts and to make sketches communicate to the viewer. The book has all the basics such as drop shadows, basic rendering and perspective. I recommend it however it is very heavy so is not as portable as I would like.
