What is Conceptual Design?
Conceptual design is the design of interactions, experiences, processes and strategies and is the point at which people, processes, and profitability meet vision and endless possibilities.
Conceptual design is a holistic, analytic exploration and a distillation to what is essential; this is where the ultimate course of the design is set and begins to take shape.
Why is it so important?
Every design project has a beginning point from which all of the potential of the finished design will arise. The conceptual design phase is the critical, elemental and first step of the design process.
