The process and the end result are both important for a designer. Usually the process involves problem-solving which can lead to a quite linear route and limit creativity. However, for this exercise and the following project, Jacqui tries to teach us a new creative process, which is a series of steps that form the end product rather than predicting the outcome first. It is rather spontaneous yet you can create "rules" or limitations that help to define the final product at the same time.
So the first step was to create some drawings using ink and markers. Listening to the music I made spontaneous random lines, shapes, volumes, and forms (pictured above).
Second, I made collage of the drawings and combined the formal elements in to one. When making these, I identified qualities that were present in the drawings such as structural, fragile, intricate, calm, chaotic, and coarse/rough.
