How do you communicate an idea?

  1. Communication involves negotiating meaning among all parties.
  2. We research, we do not guess. (This includes testing our ideas.)
  3. We try to involve all senses.
  4. We document the information that results from our process. ("Practice does not make perfect, process does." - Von Glitschka)

"It said that practice makes perfect. I disagree. If your creative process is flawed then all practice does is make you a consistent purveyor of marginal work."

"Remember, practice doesn't make perfect, process does."

- Von Glitschka
