The “Writer’s Toolbox” is a guide for designers made to help with the different ways of thinking. It is always important to start with writing when you are designing. Free-writing is almost like brainstorming where are there are no dumb questions. So, there are no dumb ideas when doing these exercises. Mind mapping, concept mapping, free writing, and word lists are examples of techniques to get the ideas flowing. When complete with these exercises, you are bound to have ideas that are potentially successful and will lead you in the right direction. In the end the whole point is to record all of your thoughts and ideas as they occur, allowing all of them to flow out, the good and the not so good. These writing exercises will help you when you are designing visually, even though they were writing. And it is a great reference for you to look back at when you need inspiration. But also, it should be able to improve you design conceptually because it won't just be aesthetically nice, but the ideas could be successful as well.
MY IMAGES WON'T LOAD, SO I AM GOING TO KEEP TRYING OTHER WAYS OF DOING IT.
