Explorative making processes.

Process-driven work can be tactical and experimental in its conception, striving to challenge design systems or explore and research design possibilities. Process-driven work can also be strategic in its application and consider careful planning and procedures for reaching design objectives.

A strong understanding of the design process is integral for generating unique ideas and implementing engaging, creative, and functional solutions. Making is part of this process and is a powerful tool for thinking and learning about the issues and themes of a project, the people at stake, as well as the final work that might come out of a project. Learning and understanding the design process helps us to generate and explore ideas, test our own assumptions, craft artifacts, and implement any array of design solutions.
