The Blueprint: Premeditated Templates

Before diving into the typing phase of my thesis, I adopted a strategic approach. By designing templates and taking printouts, I could efficiently jot down pertinent information in their respective sections. What we see here exemplifies this approach—it’s a “list of figures” page, carefully planned for clarity and precision.
