2019 | A Reflection

My girl @janet.jif was recently flipping through a design book and came across various stages of design for the center navigation on a remote control.  Stay with me.  Ultimately there were three different designs; an initial design, followed by an improvement upon the initial design, followed by the final design which ultimately would not have been the final design without having gone through the second phase.
