JPDS will write a response brief outlining what it is we understand you'd like for us to do; defining the objectives for the project.

Design concept

Critical thinking, research, planning, sketching and multiple early-stage design iterations, leading to a conceptual design.

This can be illustrative impressions, a CAD 3D-model, 3D visualisations, early stage material and colour palettes or layouts overviews depending on the project.

Both of these inform the design development where more technical aspects are implemented, a refined materials palette developed and production processes considered.
