Over the years, it is expected that in design studio, the learning gained in different courses must be incorporated into the plan procedure keeping in mind the end goal to locate an ideal answer for the design problem. The article describes the result of the project “impacts of drafting media on student’s productivity in design studio in selected schools in South West Nigeria” aimed at evaluating the two drafting media and the effect of each on student’s productivity outcome in design studio. Design students should learn by experiencing, reflecting, thinking and practicing during the time spent discovering answers for allotted design problems for productive outcomes in design studio irrespective of the drafting style used. The significance is essential at this time when unemployment is in a top gear. This study would provide valuable insight into the medium of drafting that is most productive for students of Architecture in other to prepare them for good job opportunity. The study adopted a mixed approach method of data collection and analysis. The result was presented using descriptive approach with the aid of a photographic images for easy understanding. The result of the survey suggests that both manual and digital drafting are very much relevant. Even as technological approaches to design continue to evolve, the old-fashioned drafting method is still very relevant and should not be evaporated from the curriculum, not only in South-West Nigeria, but also across the globe. The results brought about the question of the connection between these drafting media and students’ productivity. There is a limit to the generalization of the results of this study since only students in University of Lagos, Covenant University and Bells University were selected as the sample frame because there are many more schools within Lagos and Ogun state.
