Throughout my career I’ve designed buildings, brand activations, exhibitions, posters, furniture, websites and apps. Throughout my design journey, I’ve managed to distill a process that guides me or my team through any kind of project. It consists of five stages, each with specific behaviors and characteristics. This process can be scaled and iterated as well as molded to fit existing frameworks for design.


Every design project exists within a context whether it be cultural, historical, competitive or technical. This phase of my design process includes researching, analyzing and synthesizing user needs, historic precedent, competition, program analysis and everything in between.


After gathering lots of knowledge and information, the seeds of various design options begin to emerge. Several of these are destined for the trash can, but each needs to be considered in order to discover the best ideas.


This stage takes the fittest design options and develops them further into complete ideas or workable prototypes. I then examine what works and look for opportunities to strengthen the design direction.


The designs that emerge out of the “Refine” stage are finally fit for testing. If its a product, potential users may be brought in to test. In other kinds of projects, the design may be presented to a broader audience in order to gain useable feedback.


New discoveries are evaluated and incorporated, based on what worked and what did not. Is there one design option that stands out above the others? Perhaps the best design must be refined further. This process can then be repeated from any phase until the design is complete and ready for launch.
