While working on a set of detail drawings for a new project this week, it was very easy for me at first to forget about arranging the various elements in the drawing into layers and line weights until I printed out the sheet and was taking a look at my work. Although it comes off as a tedious task, redlining my own work before handing it off to my mentor or another colleague in the office for additional redlines has been pivotal in my growth as a designer. It serves as a great learning opportunity and I’ve slowly developed an eye for catching minute details that I wouldn’t have before. The addition of line weights really does give depth to a drawing and elevates the quality, making it more coherent.
