At thinkPARALLAX we are usually not fond of filters or plug-ins, but on an upcoming project a client requested that we use the AKVIS Sketch Plug-in. At first we were unsure, but after looking into the plug-in we changed our mind. We felt strongly that the plugin should not become a focal point of the design, but wanted to use it here and there for support. The range of options and adjustments that can happen allowed us to have a lot of control over the plug-in to achieve the results we desired. Check out AKVIS to see some of their other plug-ins and see some images of an upcoming project.
