Collaboration as it Could Be

December 10, 2008

To continue from the last…

For those of us who are not artists, who cannot and should not rely on raw inspiration to achieve success, we need to find a way to work that pulls from the best of those around us and allows for immediate feedback on an idea.

To work together maybe we should really work together. Sit around the same table, around the same drawing, the same screen, the same model and talk through the issues. Work the design as a team. Charette the problems. Come to solutions together. Only then should we work to implement those ideas individually.

The doing of the work, the actual production of the drawings, models and images that represent our understanding of the idea, should be done as quickly as possible so that we can get back to what we’re really all here to do, creatively solve problems.
