‘What does it look like?’
Concept sketches for physical products are all about capturing the visual appearance of the product.
In the case of a proposed service offering / new software, concept sketches can be about capturing some design or operational data like flow diagrams or code routines that are essential to our understanding of what the product is, what it does or how it works.
This is important for clarity and to ensure that we are on the same page as the client, and have not missed or inadvertently overlooked some important aspect of the product.
It’s also important because oftentimes mistakes do occur from the moment a client outlines their idea to when you have a visual representation of that idea. Thus concept sketches are an opportunity for the client to correct any mistakes, or add to the initial information which has been passed onto us.
Further, in most cases progressing with the project (whether such is getting some engineering diagrams drawn or if the product is an App, getting some screen mockups designed) is made a bit easier when a visual representation of the product is available. It also enables us to ask questions about whether there are other design alternatives or methods by which the product could be made.
