I work closely with each client to assure their project is completed on time and to ensure they are quite happy with the results. Here is a summary of how most projects work:
After the pleasantries of our initial conversation we will go over your project details and I will gather as much information as possible right from the beginning. This may entail completing a full questionnaire or just answering some easy questions about your upcoming project. Once we are both satisfied with the direction of the project, the scope, timeline, and the details then I will generate an estimate based on all of the information. Upon accepting the estimate (and everything else mentioned) a contract will be drafted up tailored for your specific project, timeline and estimate.
Consultation & Research
Through emails, phone calls, meetings and Skype conferences I gather as much information about your project as possible. There are many phases of research, from learning about your company, to scoping out the competition, keeping an eye out for the latest trends that affect your business, finding the perfect design style / photography / artwork / typography, tailoring specific functions for your website, tracking Google analytics for starters. The more we know about what you have in mind from the beginning the better we can tailor the impact the final product will have. The contract must be signed and 50% of payment made before the project’s process may begin; some exceptions may apply but they will be outlined in detail within the contract.
Concepts, ideas, sketching, wireframing, thumbnails — there are many different terms for the various ways to brainstorm ideas to get the ball rolling. We will go through the conceptual step together to create a plan to find the best solution for the you and your project, constantly revising along the way as you see fit.
Once the final concept is realized then the fun begins — developing the website, creating the campaign, designing the poster, developing the logo, shooting the photos, painting the mural, or whatever the project may be. This is where all of our hard work and ideas grow into a polished, professional, and aesthetically pleasing piece.
Revisions & Testing
Should that font be yellow instead of peach? No problem. Every project goes through testing and reviewing. Websites are cross browser compatible and work on mobile devices, and all the functionality is rigorously tested. Print pieces, logos, photography, and artwork are all reviewed, revised and refinished.
Our project is completed and delivered to you. Websites are launched, ads are printed, murals are painted. All files will be available for download via FTP, Dropbox, Box.com and/or whatever the best way is to deliver them to you. Final payment must be made before the delivery of the final project files, launching of the website, sending files to print, etc.
