Coming up with an idea I start with a mind map and then start to draw thumbnails, wireframes, mock-ups, and sitemaps.
Having more than one design idea gives the client options. Designing mock-ups, logos, and icons in Photoshop or Illustrator. Gathering images.
Ill start with a pre-built template or from scratch depending on the design or client’s needs.
Packaging up all the project files and making sure whoever I’m passing the project onto knows how to work the interface.
