The hurdles in designing an architectural project can make you feel lost and helpless.  I’m here to hold your hand and guide you through this mess.

A design project can be daunting, especially when you’re the kind of person that over-complicates their world when faced with a lot of stress. This is a dangerous and counterproductive – because really, oftentimes the simplest and most elementary of approaches work best.

In this series of articles, I’m going to help you calmly weed through the clutter of every step of the design journey. Our little goal here is for you to be able to produce the best damn design project you’ve churned out to date – and be damn proud about it.

I’ve collated all posts into sub-groups, for maximum clarity and absorption. Content is continuously being developed, and you can expect to see a whole lot more entries over the next few months (and years).
