In case you haven't heard we created a new service to help you reduce your upfront speculative design costs. We launched our service late this summer to considerable praise. Here is a sample of what people are saying:

"Love it!"
"This is a brilliant idea! Nice Work!!"
"Very interesting concept. Site looks
fantastic and is easy to navigate."
"This is great!"
"This would be GREAT in those speculative situations!!"
"This is a great solution for the real world"
"Great Idea!"
"Wow, this looks very cool!"
"Brilliant! Great value and as usual gorgeous
design work from Core Design "
"Very creative solution"

Design Tip #41: "Start with a Sketch"

Stay loose. Start with a sketch...on actual paper. Seems simple, but too many time crunched designers fall into the same looks by "sketching in the computer". No matter how hard you try, the process of creating within a CAD program will limit your ideas at a time when they should flow as easily and fluently as possible. So take a deep breath, and a step back and begin with a pen and a clean slate. Your results will be more creative and you can always figure out how to model it.
