Abstract: With increasing reliance on computer-aided systems to assist in the resolution and presentation of graphic design solutions, the need for graphic design students to acquire the ability to draw has been questioned. Indeed, within the graphic design profession the understanding of the role of drawing in the design process and the capacity to use drawing effectively has, in many respects, diminished. However, the in-depth study on which this paper is based, has revealed that for graphic designers in every branch of the profession and at every level of seniority, drawing acts as an important procedural device, assisting in the performance of a wide range of tasks that fulfil both organizational and creative requirements. Developments in technology may well have changed the use that designers make of drawing but they have not superseded it. Therefore it is important to analyse this change and review educational provision accordingly.
