WHAT IF THE DESIGN YOU’VE BEEN WORKING ON FOR MONTHS WAS FINALLY GOING INTO PRODUCTION?
I KNOW HOW IT FEELS. AND IT'S AMAZING.
You know you need a tech pack to get your designs into development, but you're not sure about a few things...
What exactly do you need to include?
How do you know if it's complete?
How much detail is enough?
After creating 100s of tech packs, I figured out answers to these questions. I discovered shortcuts and easier ways to organize things. I created simple checklists to make sure they were complete.
Because better tech packs means fewer protos and samples.
And that translates to cold hard cash (and time).
But what I discovered along the way is that no one wants to spend hours creating perfect tech packs.
It’s actually not even about the perfect tech pack. The best software. The “industry” standard.
It’s about knowing that this design you’ve been working on for months, dreaming about for years, is finally going into development.
It’s about knowing your design will be made correctly.
That your vision will be communicated clearly.
That your dream will be realized into an actual product.
