Portfolio for IOTA Foundation
Stage 1 – Read/listen to brief and ask questions if necessary.
Stage 2 – If required, I’ll do research related to the product. E.g. current visual trends, target market.
Stage 3 – Depending on the project, I either do 1 or a combination of the following:
(a) Create a moodboard
(b) Find inspiration
(c) Create a list of keywords
(d) If I’m confident in a conceptual idea I’ve thought up, I’ll head straight into designing
Stage 4 – Start exploring design ideas in design program of choice. Either Illustrator, Photoshop, Indesign or XD. On occasion, I’ll use a pen and paper at this stage.
Stage 5 – Create a range of options and then further develop those options down to a few for client to choose.
Stage 6 – Receive feedback and further develop the design.
Stage 7 – Repeat stage 6.
Stage 8 – Present and hand-off final design.
On the odd occasion, if I strongly believe in a design I’ve created, I’ll take my chosen design and urge the client to use it without seeing other options. (thus essentially skipping stages 6 and 7.
