This weeks Design Process Visualization is brought to us by Laura. She writes:
My visualization is Venn-like, to show the overlapping activity of the process. It also has a visual mnemonic with the letters rendered in a functionally interpretive way: “think” is ephemeral, “draw” is 2-D, and “make” is 3-D.
I didn’t label the “good design”, but make the implication with the central spherical element.
The arcs surrounding the element at the center imply the iterative aspect of designing.
Laura does a fair amount of design visualization work for Symantec Corporation, focusing on design and design methodologies. This 3 part paradigm is used liberally though out her work designing information entities and specifying the systems that support them. She dabbles in physical design outside of work as a hobby and looks to branch out more in the future.
It is really nice to see the >Think>Draw>Make> design process is used in a situation other than our traditional design sense. I like to thank Laura for her interpretation, and do check out some of her design hobbies in her flickr set.
