I have heard of the concept of flow before taking this course. It’s something that we all tried to achieve when in Undergrad. Our best designs came when we finally found a ‘flow’ and a work setting that enabled us to create in a way that we lost all other concerns and were completely focused on the design we were working on.
I experience flow when working on more intricate design projects. I like work that can sometimes be monotonous. I can turn off the world and the worries that are going through my head. I am completely focused on the tasks at hand. I feel most confident when I have achieved a design work flow. This usually happens in my design process when I am brainstorming and starting to break into the digital form. I will say that my design flow is something that needs to be achieved with the right mind set… if I am not completely focused on my design I will never achieve it. I also have to be comfortable in my work setting – a comfortable and clean area helps me achieve this.
