    4. Find an expert to interview to find out more about this market, bullet point your findings. This expert should have a deep relationship with sports stadia.

    6. Write 4 quick treatments of your creation myth. This is the identity or brand of what you are going to be designing. This can be total fiction, a story that can communicate the mood and should give the reason for your design to exist as well as give people the reason to connect.
