Squiggle by Damien Newman

Years ago…kidding, about 2 years ago I published this awesome little representation of the design process created by Damien Newman from Central Office of Design.

Lovingly called the “Squiggle”, it seems to have found a life of its own all over the place. Don’t you just love the Internet? Damien has since released it under a Creative Commons License.

We really need more of such design process diagrams or visualizations. It helps brings to the table a certain level of clarity and succinctness rarely seen in the difficult client education aspect of our design business. Thanks Damien!
