Back to work, and the drawing board, a couple of days ahead of #TeamJonRhodes and I’ve found myself scribbling some designs that are going in to estimate form for a new VIP project in 2018. Inspired by #TimGosling ’s master class on sketching with #iPadPro at #Decorex a few months ago, I’ve finally got around to playing with it and have spent a creative afternoon pencil sketching and/or pencil tracing over photographs, before transferring to the tablet for colouring and embellishing. All of this should (if I get it right) enable a clearer dialogue between us and the designer, bringing the written brief/designers estimate to life (prior to the designer commissioning their own artists visuals, when relevant) and allowing us to make changes, if needed, at concept stage. I think it’s going to prove a useful device…. we will find out in 2018.
