Attempt at merging the manifestos after reflecting the direction our work is going:
All designers have their own process when designing. This may differ according to many factors – the object being designed, the discipline the designer is schooled in, available resources, specific audience needs and requirements, and so forth.
Often, these processes overlap. Often they don’t. The same words may be used to describe different phases, different words may be used to describe the same steps.
Whatever the process, complicated or simple, the process always has an outcome. Looked at in retrospect, the design can most probably still be improved. But this is not always practically possible.
By reflecting on the design process, the designer can discover unexplored pathways, examine knowledge gained, real world experience and feedback. Through doing this, the designer can aim to improve their own process which could aid them in improving their designs.
