Working with You: Our Process
First We Listen. When we are getting to know you and about your business, we ask a lot of questions questions that tell us what you are looking for, even if youre not quite sure what that is just yet. We ask questions about what your goals are, how you perceive your business and how you want to be perceived by your target market.
We Provide Options. Theres no such thing as one size fits all. Every client is unique. So are their objectives. Depending on the scope of the project, especially large projects, well offer options and approaches to match your needs and budget.
We Have Ways of Keeping Accountable. For new and refresh branding projects, we take what we have learned from you and provide a detailed written creative brief. A creative brief is a blueprint for the project. What goes into a creative brief are project overview, goals, messages, audience description, budget, schedule and anything else that is relevant to the project. A creative brief keeps us accountable. We design to the brief and nothing else.
Whether or not a project requires a creative brief, its our practice to provide clients with detailed estimates for projects. Estimates can contain options with price points for each option and what the deliverables will be for each option. Estimates may contain project phases with deliverables outlined for each phase. We also provide a time frame for project phases with a project completion date. This keeps everyone on track to make sure the project stays on track.
We Keep You In the Loop. Youre busy running your own business, you shouldnt have to wonder how your project is coming and guess where things are at. Well keep you in the know. Promise.
Presenting the Work. Depending on your style, schedule and how many decision makers are involved, we can customize project design presentations to meet your needs. Whether presentations are PDFs or PowerPoints, we provide written rationales outlining the creative direction for your project.
