What to Expect in our Partnership
The key to making projects run smoothly and close with a desired final outcome for all sides of the equation is clarity and communication.
Clarity is required because it is only with clear instructions that your graphic designer can create what you have in mind. Communication is important because sometimes things shift and changes need to be made.
In order for the road to stay smooth, both parties need to be able to communicate their perspective and needs so we can deliver the best performance either as a project manager or as your project designer.
It takes two to make a thing go right…and we are totally in.
Years of project management has allowed us to develop a process that helps us get as close as possible to what you want to create before one hour is spent on the actual development phase.
This means that, before we begin, we have a very clear concept of the visuals you want to create.
This makes every step that follows more simplistic, accurate, and productive.
The only requirement from you is that you have an idea of what you want or be willing to hand over the decision-making to us entirely. The follow-up requirement for us is to be honest about our ability to deliver on your desire and then carry out that delivery as efficiently as possible.
Getting The Job Done
Creative Design Process
1. PROJECT DISCOVERY
Aligning with your brand and target users. Learning your history, brand image, and competitors and using that info to strategize design goals.
2. DESIGN DIRECTION
Client creative brief and meeting. Define the marketing message and response we want to create. Client approves design direction based on idea review(s).
3. PROGRESS CHECKPOINT
The design process begins and an early progress approval is required to ensure everything is on track.
6. TEST, PACKAGE, DELIVER
After making edits based on your change request feedback, I perform two more polishing rounds then package the files and send your download link!
5. POLISHING AND REVISIONS
Now we have a first draft of the completed project. Prior to submitting to you for review, I polish and perfect the design for consistency and elegance.
4. MIDPOINT CHECK
Similar to the previous checkpoint, this stage ensures design quality is inline with your vision. Delivery is a rough draft of 50% of the project for feedback.
