An idea is the central thought or meaning expressed in a short sentence or phrase with no executional details.
Anatomy of an idea consists of:
- Focused centrality.
- Conceptual, with no executional details.
- Precise and to the point.
- Short, single sentence.
Example for 1-line idea:
- A personal, portable device that washes, cleanses your face.
- Water-free facewash for using out of home.
On the other hand, a concept is more detail oriented. It is an explanatory brief used to explain the idea with multiple benefits, reasons-to-believe, price, positioning and visual cues.
