Deconstructing Design





Five photos. Of watches. What do they have in common? No this is not some mad dash back to your college SATS; although it may be a quirky kind of visual IQ test. Just start listing what you think these photos share. Think impact, qualities. Go ahead free associate.

Welcome to my world. How do we "talk" about design? Visual things? How do we describe an idea and translate it from words to pictures and back again? Hm? How do you convey a vision? Being able to speak the same language as your designer, or if you are that designer, being able to understand what is being expressed by your client is part of the job. NOT the easy part.

So look at those 5 photos and imagine me talking about them with my designer. What can I be saying?

Yep. Brush. We need more coffee.
