The body of work is an attempt to explore the approach of a designer in his working process with the aim to analyse, to reflect and perhaps to improve the thoughts and actions by the example of my own practice. The result is a 400-page research diary and an ongoing theoretical argument. It contains all the uncensored thoughts and actions of a designer over a time period of four months and forms the basis for new comments and reflections. The work makes a process visible, comprehensible and understandable which usually takes place in secret and provides the start for a discussion on the practice of designers and design.
