I stumbled across a couple of our design sketches from earlier this year, and thought you might find them interesting. This is pretty representative of how we approach design here at GuildQuality. For this project, we engaged a contractor, Chris Turner (super guy), to build our project mapping functionality, and then it was up to David to incorporate it into our member’s profile pages.
While he was in the home stretch, David requested some design input from me. I was on vacation at the time, and happened to be drawing with my daughter (hence the crayons). I made some notes, took a couple pictures of them with my iPhone, sent them to him, and he finished up the project. The sketches and notes are the two pictures on the left; the final product is on the right.
