DRAWING
The initial step to design and advertising is to start generating ideas. The best way is also the simplest – sketching. Drawing enables clarity of your own thinking as well as making it easier to explain your ideas. Use of notational and explanatory sketching is what enables designers, art directors, and copywriters to excel in idea generation.

Developing the capability of using language playfully is the foundation of branding and advertising – it builds differentiation and aids in market disruption – allowing for unique and memorable deliveries.

APPLICATION
When you have the ability and understanding of the core components – typography, sketching, and messaging – the final piece is format. The ‘what’ and the ‘how’ is determined by what medium is best suited for the message. Simplification and focus on applying message to format enables clarity and keeps the target audience happy and informed.
