Every design process begins with a problem to solve. Once the problem is defined, a visual solution can be made for it. I go through the following stages with each project; researching, sketching, concepting and final creation. Depending on the client: personas, site maps, use cases, scenarios, user flow and wireframes may be used to translate the idea before execution.
Research gather information on client and competitors.
Sketch brainstorming phase: sketch drawings and mind maps.
Concept settling down on an idea based on the sketches and mind maps.
Create executing the established idea.
