Welcome to the first phase
It all starts with the design. As a Virtual Design Master, you need to think on your feet and bring your experience to the table as you take requirements and turn them into a design that will stand the test of the vDM judges.
Spanning the logical and physical layouts, the design must speak for itself. That doesn't mean that it won't need the designer. It just means that your design justifications will support a fully documented proposal.
Just think that this may feel like finish line, that it's just the start for a Virtual Design Master.
