On the design process

If you love design, check this out. Good job of capturing the process. 

The key takeaway, in my opinion, is that where most people think and think about the problem, Aaron Draplin sketches, rapid fire. The creatives I know (including myself) experiment, and err, 100 times as much as most people. Notice how he rapid-fires designs on paper first. Then he goes to the computer and he’s still experimenting rapidly. 

While not everyone can be a master, anyone can design. Few do because they don’t realize it’s not about innate talent, it’s a question of practice. People who say they can’t draw (or sing or throw a baseball…) are wrong. 

By the way, if you think you can’t draw, read the book “Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain,” by Betty Edwards.
