summary The emergence of digital alongside analog design media has created an interest in how the two intersect and differ. A traditional paper drawing can possess qualities of originality, authorship, and continuity of expression that may be lacking in a digitally produced drawing. Audio aficionados hold onto their collection of vinyl records based upon qualities of sound that they perceive. A manually created drawing by a grand master will be valued typically over a digital drawing in which a copy is of equal quality to the original. This paper explores distinctions between analog and digital media, explaining the creative opportunities and critical issues that emerge with the hybrid combinations that have become commonplace within the design studio. Three instructors from separate schools of design survey in-practice uses, and offer a common perspective on a topic that has created uncertainty over the place and use of design media.
