Thursday September 14th

Reminders and Tips:

  • Find yourself an editing buddy – someone you can call on for a quick proof read on your posts.
  • The same goes for a "comps" buddy – if you have a hard time looking to the market to see if it has already been done. Swap concepts with a buddy and jumpstart your comp research as a team.
  • Prepare your concepts in a way that is easy for everyone to see and understand. I highly encourage supplementing your concept sketches with physical sketch mockups.
  • Take a break from inventing concepts to get inspired; Intrigued by a material or manufacturing processes? Stop and read about it. Curious about a use case? Talk to someone who uses.
