Getting Creative- #2 Giving It Time

Often times we are extremely rushed in our design projects, the client wanted it yesterday right? As designers we have all learned to deal with deadlines but we should try to work in some additional time for the design process. It will help your designs to be at the high standard you desire. So how can we do this? The most important is to start on each project right away. Don't wait until everything else is caught up, you will behind before you start. Starting does not necessarily mean we have to drop everything, start your research while you are living your life, shopping, eating out, start thinking about the project on your drive home. You can never start to early and simple steps can give you that extra time to process. You need to jot down your ideas early to give them time to process. Good design is a process and takes time, so give it some.
