We’ll start with an initial call, Skype session or email conversation to discuss what you are looking for and what services would work best to help you meet your goals. After this conversation, we will send you a proposal of services, which will detail your project, timeline, payment terms and more. To officially start your project, you’ll simply send the completed proposal back to us, which will then serve as your contract. Once we have this in place, we will discuss next steps while we begin thinking about creative.
During this step in the process we learn as much about your business as possible. You’ll tell us about any mandatory elements that must be included in your design and project and ask any questions you might have about us in general. From our experience, the best designs are created when we know the most about you and your business goals, so it is best for you to give us as much information as possible before we start the conceptual process. We will also ask you to complete our creative brief, which will help get the creative juices flowing and provide a space for you to put some notes down on paper for us to go review.
DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT
Once we have learned everything we can from you, we put the pencil to the paper. We brainstorm and design. Within about two weeks you will receive your design concepts. At this time you are given the opportunity to review your designs, and sometimes this is all it takes and you are able to simply select a design direction. Of course we would love to tell you that this is how every project ends up, but in reality it’s not. So you will also be able to provide us with any feedback and or revisions that you may have to the concept that you select.
We will work together with you to refine your design and create the perfect representation of your business. We include up to three rounds of revisions on your brand and/or website project. Any additional requested revision rounds will be subject to additional fees. Each revision round takes approximately one week to complete. Design revisions are typically requested through your project management portal but if you prefer to provide revision requests or discuss additional design directions by phone, a phone appointment can be set up at anytime throughout the process.
Once the design and any requested revisions are completed and approved, we will deliver your design files to you for the branding portion of your project, and then your website will begin to be developed. Site development typically takes two weeks, but can vary depending on the scope of your project. Once your project launches, we will help drive traffic and attention to your new brand or website by doing a spotlight on our blog and showcasing your new look on our social platforms.
