Describe your process:  My process always begins with an open mind and a lot of brainstorming. In the beginning, no idea is too crazy, and anything is possible. Then, after reality sets in, I get ready for a lot of iterations, endless to-do lists, and some serious problem-solving. Sprinkle in a little procrastination (I work best under pressure), and I’ll surely make it to the finish line. But is any design project ever really complete?
