A ‘Rich Picture’ is the first stage in the design process. When you start designing, the theme is placed in the centre of the page and link words are positioned around it. This can be seen on the example below, a rich picture for the theme 'Educational Toy'. These link words should be related to the centre theme and they will help you think of points that you must consider when trying to solve the design problem.
For example, the word ‘materials’ may prompt you to consider different woods, metals and plastics that could be useful when trying to work out the best materials for your solution. In this way you should write as many words as possible around the theme but only if they have some link. A rich picture must also have pictures or diagrams to give a good, clear, visual effect. Without them it is a diagram.

Rich Pictures are an important way of starting a design project. You will need to constantly look back at your rich picture as you progress through the design process. The key words will remind you of the many design problems you need to solve and the key areas your need to research.
