All designers work differently, but I think I am pretty safe in saying that most of us start our creative visions with a scrap of paper and whatever pen we can find. After some frantic pen ramblings, we sit back and cast our eyes over the scribbles and usually, ideas, themes and concepts can be found amongst the wandering ink.
But this design was to be different. The design team was to create the garden, not just the usual singular designer. And with three very different designers – all with very particular ways of working, styles and interpretations of the brief, each of our pen ramblings and resulting concepts had the potential to be completely different.
Yet on the flipside we all have very particular strengths and expertise. We all believe in our design principles and what we stand for. Two heads are better than one, and three is, well, more productive.
But could we combine all of our individual ramblings and concepts into one cohesive design worthy of the 25th anniversary celebrations?
