A good way to get ideas out quickly is to start with a se­ries of thumb­nails. This helps to fo­cus the at­ten­tion on ma­jor shapes and less about mi­nor de­tails at this point. A de­sign al­most al­ways suf­fers when the ma­jor shapes aren’t es­tab­lished first. Fo­cus on an in­ter­est­ing sil­hou­ette. A suc­cess­ful de­sign will al­ways have a sil­hou­ette that reads well. Usu­ally, this means that there’s a cer­tain flow to the de­sign and it doesn’t feel too rigid. The shapes and the re­la­tion­ship be­tween the shapes will de­ter­mine whether the de­sign works or not.
