To start, I usually create a Miro Board, containing mood boards and research, in one place. Usually, I keep a concise look on the page, so that the board shows my journey and isn't confusing for others to view.
Once I've developed an idea for a project or visual identity, I move on to the iteration. This is my favourite part of designing, I like to make sure I've pursued every option before I decide on a final identity, this way no stone is interned, and I have come up with the most suitable option(s) to them move onto my development.
This is an example of a visual identity board. When I'm sold on one idea, I create a visual identity board of the final colour scheme, fonts and assets. This gives me a strong connection between all the assets I create, outlining that cohesion throughout.
To bring the idea to life, I use realistic mock-ups to bring an idea to life, this way, for both client and myself. I feel this is the most satisfying part of my projects for that exact reason. For some projects, physical assets are made instead, such as my RSA entry.
Finally, as part of my university hand-ins, I have had to provide a process book that reflects my journey. These two are the most recent process books I have printed.
