One of the most influential professors I have ever had challenged me as a designer. Her regimented process of design that she passed down to her students made me the designer I am today. The premise of her process was to sketch as many thumbnails of an idea until your brain melts. With this kind of focus when it came down to picking a final idea I was surprised, it was hard to pick one. What is also great about this process is if I’m ever in a creative block I can usually reference something from these thumbnails and get back on the creative track.
