Getting the Ideas Down on Paper

Even though we have computers, iPhones and iPads, we still use pencil and paper around here to iterate initial ideas. Connecting thoughts with a physical medium keeps it real for us. We can also make quick notes, and if we get distracted we don’t have to remember about hitting that Save button. Ideas outlined in red were all taken to the rough construction phase.

Polishing the Roughs

At this point, it’s quicker to translate the initial sketches into digital pieces. Variations can be made in a fraction of the time that hand rendering used to take. As a result, we’re able to give clients more options when the situation allows.
