Session: Sketches to Projects

It's easier to start projects than to finish them, so this talk is a look at the process of transforming projects from the mess and flux of initial experimentation into their final form. It is a look at the creative process to flesh out the promise of the initial ideas, what happens after the broad strokes and before the final touches, based on examples and insights from personal and collaborative work.
