In art school and online “visual development” is mainly discussed in terms of technique or craft, but these are just the tools of the trade. The visual development job is so much more, it is storytelling, taste-making, researching, observing, designing and re-designing, communicating, self-analyzing, etc. This talk is about the practical process and philosophy behind visual development and production design beyond just making pretty pictures.
