DISCOVERING THE PROCESS Markie Dossett


DISCOVERING THE PROCESS Markie Dossett


Every idea you write down, no matter its quality, is a step forward. Inspiration will come as you let your mind explore. This book was created to showcase the process my work goes through from beginning sketches and thoughts to the final product. As a group we each created our own list of projects we thought would be interesting. From our personal list we chose our 5 favorites. We then did a group vote on the 30 best. I was given this list of 30 random project assignments to complete. Once finished, I chose 10 projects that best displayed my creative process. There is a range of treatments giving to the different projects. Some have more planning and are taken to a finished state, while others are completed quickly through initial instincts. Some are fun, some are humourous, and some are serious. Each one has its own set of influences to allow them to speak different visual languages. I don’t consider all of these to be beautiful. There are projects that have better outcomes than others. The importance is in the process and discovering how the process works for me. Every project starts with decisions and research. First, I must decide what exactly it is that I am trying to portray. From here, research is necessary to discover the audience and any information about the ‘thing’ that I am trying to communicate. I also use research as a way to feed my mind. I try to view as many images as possible that can relate to my project in anyway. This is an important step in my process. It allows me to generate more and more ideas until I finally arrive at a solution. The sketch that I use to base my design off of is rarely unchanged. Once I begin to digitally create, there are tweaks made to the design the improve its visual functionality. These changes lead to the creation of the finished product.
