I walked them though my personal process of design work: When I get a prompt the first thing I do is research. I like to look into what's been done before, solutions other people found, and reoccurring patterns in formal qualities. I don't sketch as much as I should because at that point I get restless and just jump onto the computer. So I end up "sketching" on the computer. Then I do a lot of trial and error until I reach a place I like and I build the rest of the project from there.
