This is a good stage to run through, especially if you’re working for a client. They’ll want to see options, and so it’s a good demonstration of your versatility as a designer to show them your thought process. Show some diversity, but be aware of the stated design requirements. Each sketch should maintain the feel of a covered wagon.
Lorin’s rules of design
Here are some helpful rules of thumb to keep in mind during the early stages of the creative process. Will your viewer be able to understand the design’s story just by looking at it? Does the overall design have a good silhouette that exerts an intended mood? Can you identify the purpose and function of the design in three seconds? Does the design seem plausible? If you answer any of these questions with a no or a maybe, then it’s a good sign that you may need to rethink your approach. It’ll save you time later on, too!
