My own creative process consists of a few steps and A LOT of note taking. Please see the attached diagram to view my current design process.
I am an organizer and a prioritizer. I tend to create endless to-do lists and lists that I follow to a point to create order and make sure I keep myself oriented towards a goal. I often see a solution to a problem that I then have trouble executing to the highest level of workman ship. At work I am told that my boss is the “big idea” and I am the “big execution.” I am new to the graphic design setting so my skill set is not as advanced as many of the students that I know. I was hired out of Undergrad to work for a builder/developer as a sales and marketing assistant. I was really hired to complete interior selections with new home buyers and work as the in-house designer for model merchandising. I began noticing that our advertisement team was doing a pretty crappy job of achieving designs that were cost effective and reflected the quality of work that the builder was looking to achieve. I decided to take on the role and become a larger support to the company which cut out the middle man. When working on a major design project I have to collaborate with different businesses to achieve our goal, I tend to be the ring leader and work on keeping everyone on a tight deadline. My biggest weakness is that to complete a certain project I have to do a lot of research and follow a few tutorials so that I can achieve the goal. Someone may already have that knowledge. I however find that it is sometimes works in my benefit because I am constantly learning something new and benefitting from every design project I take on. I am one who will never stop learning and will always look for more opportunities.
