Behind the scenes

Today's March Meet the Maker prompt is starting point. I've noticed that I work well when I begin the design process by creating a specific design brief. It is something I forget to do from time to time and usually results in unsatisfactory lettering or painful design process. This is an example of the latter. 🙈 I spent way too long on this quote unable to figure out what was wrong and felt increasingly frustrated with it. After a chat with a friend (thanks heaps @klick80 !!!) I remembered to articulate my design brief and was able to finish the piece. For me, having clear constraints make sketching iterations an exercise in problem solving. I just need to avoid the temptation to skip this step. 😊
