Mockups of your design are important to helping your clients to visualize design details. In this video, I show how I built a mockup of the edge profile for a Mid-Century nightstand design, so the client can visualize what their piece will look like with different edge bevels. I also want them to get an idea of what the two-tone stain would look like.
I don’t mock up all my projects. I feel out about the conversation and listen to my client’s concerns. I will build the mock-up if a concern can be addressed with a stain sample or mock-up. This extra time alleviates stress during the project and builds confidence with the client and me that the project will turn out awesome.
How to build models and mockups is the theme today. I show how a single mockup can be built to display various design options, to help your client visualize what the final design is going to look like.
