LAURA'S LUCKY DIP QUESTIONS
How important is the planning process in what you do
For me most planning only comes into play when there is a deadline set. It is important to map out the steps needed to be taken in order to complete the work to the highest standard possible in that timeframe. I make lists and i like to tick it off when I have completed a step. With my work I plan colourways, concepts of themes that will work, and timelines. After that I like to just experiment and play.
