Whether it's a mobile app, website, or flyer, my approach generally remains the same. Take a fuzzy, abstract problem, break it apart, do your research, experiment, and learn something from the outcome. Rinse and repeat until a concrete solution reveals itself.
Design often starts out messy with a lot of questions, feedback, and failed concepts. But that bumpy path tends to smooth out as you find your way to the right solution.
