Designers Resources: Ground Zero Is The Design

Whether it is a block or swatch and sketch, it all starts with the design concept created by the Designer.

Hardly a day goes by that someone in some “designer” group does not ask “What’s Selling”

Design is like art, those who sell best may have all the technical skills to do what’s popular, creating “on demand” and they are one type of designer.

In those same discussions there are also those who make the extremely valid point,
Long term success is when the Designer chooses to take the risk of making their own kind of music and first producing the design and then worrying about where to sell it.

Everything after that “might” be done by hired guns or by the Designer, but there are a number of separate tasks that “someone has to do” in order for a design to move from mind to the runway or pattern or chart.

    Not necessarily in order, but here are a few of those tasks

  • Pattern Writing
  • Tech Editing
  • Pattern Testing
  • Model Maker
  • Photography
  • Illustrations
  • Romance Language
  • and more.

The Goal of this series is to share my perspective and hopefully you will add your comments and ideas. But the place to start, well, perhaps some music will help Something LIke the Mama’s & Papa’s … Make Your Own Kind Of Music
