Design Process Visualization 3

April 21st, 2008 by Design Translator


This week’s design visualization comes from Mario Vellandi who writes the very excellent Melodies in Marketing blog.

As you can see we are starting to morph and expand on what this process means to us. Have your say and email me your own interpretation via email to dt [at] designsojourn.com.

I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

Think Draw Make Chart

Lest We Forget…

Frustrated at seeing designers:

  • draw & make but don’t think
  • think & draw but don’t make
  • think & make but don’t draw

This website is meant to be a living reminder for everyone of this basic design process.

To get the ball rolling, I’ve designed and uploaded this first visualization chart for everyone to enjoy! If you are interested in submitting your own interpretation of this process, do not hesitate to email me your 550×450 pixels Jpeg to:
