A common feature amongst the top design portfolio and agency websites is a visually presented explanation of their design process. This simple idea of describing how a potential client’s project will be handled from start to finish is a great way of securing projects and giving the customer an insight into what their working relationship with the designer(s) will be like. This showcase rounds up a bunch of impressive examples of how various designers have explained their design process with the aid of clever graphical elements.
Explaining your design process
The basic idea of presenting your design process to potential clients is a great way of giving them an insight into what their project will entail. Not only will this give them comfort in that they’ll know what to expect and how long it might take, but it also shows the amount of work that’s involved which helps tremendously in adding value to your work. Many clients don’t fully understand the work involved when building a website, so explaining the design process beforehand can really help iron out those tricky discussions later down the line.
As designers we like to transform boring information into easily digestible content, and overall just make it all look pretty. All of these featured websites do a great job of presenting their design process in an interesting way, with the help of charts, diagrams and unique illustrations.
