Introduction: The stories that follow are a unique document of an important process, for many of the designers I interviewed, who showed me their original roughs, said: "Even our client never saw these." I asked them all: How do you begin work on a design project? What sort of briefs do you get? What design process do you use? How do you know when it is the right solution? The replies I received were remarkably frank and varied. While one company might show only one final solution, another will give the client dozens of choices. While one company will spend months working on its initial ideas, another does its best work the day before the first presentation.
This book covers a wide range of products and design methods. Most of the designers spoke of importance of the initial brief and stressed the need to understand the client's business, the brand positioning and the customers' expectations. Clients often put together design rosters of up to a dozen different consultants, with whom they develop long-term relationships, and if, as it is sometimes the case, clients find it difficult to understand how designers work, this book sould leave them in no doubt.
