Design Process

I love solving complex design problems and creating holistic user experiences. You’ll never find me anywhere without my iPad and sketchbook, well other than my morning runs. It’s important for me to always have something to draw and capture my ideas on. I tend to be inspired during the least expected moments. Some of my greatest ideas are developed during my workouts. Other times, I may be at the dining room table enjoying chicken parmesan when I am hit with a compelling idea. I find that I revisit my sketches often to inspire my creativity.

I feel a rush of excitement once my pencil hits paper or Jot Touch Pro glides across my iPad. I can easily execute approaches to a problem or convey a flow of an experience. Sketching becomes a very useful step prior to the creation of wireframes or conceptual design. Sketching lets you break rules, try something new and is a great way to create an initial connection with your client.

“Design is an interesting word. Some people think design means how it looks. But of course, if you dig deeper, it’s really how it works.”

— Steve Jobs.
