Design iterations


Between now and week 11, we will be focusing on the iterative design process. I’d like you to produce a huge volume of work in this 3 week period. The output format is up to you. If you are comfortable with the digital model as a development, that would be fine or you can choose physical models. Also, you may focus on one area each week to develop or work in all area every week for reviews.
