|weight-shifting of matchstick figures|
A good group of designers has signed up for Figures for Design this month! My challenge is to identify and preserve each person's stroke style and give guidelines for proportion and level of detail. Everyone possesses a stroke style, whether they identify as being able to draw or not. Like other behaviors, stroke style can be discerned and incrementally modified. Above is one phase past paperclip people on the workshop's path toward identifiable figures that communicate ideas without drawing attention away from the design itself.
