Sketches and ideas 

I usually start with tons of ideas – too many ideas – sketch them, or write them down in a very basic manner, just to get most of the ideas just out of my system and into some form. Nowadays my sketching usually happens on an iPad rather than on paper. After usually literally a hundred ideas, I’ll make slightly nicer sketches, and show a few of those concepts to the client. The point of sharing a quick sketch, is to share the IDEA, and see if that concept resonates with the goals set earlier in the project. If none of the concepts works, it’s easy enough to go back for more ideas. 


The ideas here: 1. brainwaves 2. modularity for bespoke dose 3. energy and movement slashes

Sketches and concepts

From the chosen idea, I’ll make the first digital version. There was a new concept that came up during this round, but most of the versions were around the brainwaves concept. The background swirly bits were deemed too impractical in reality and readability, so the swirls ended up becoming more of an icon. 

I personally still love the X’s and +’s concept below.
