THE DESIGN PROCESS

How does your process work, if I were to hire you? What will happen next?

Every project takes it’s own path, but these are the core stages of any project.

  1. CONSULTATION: We will speak with you regarding your needs and goals. This will help to generate a more accurate estimate and get us closer to what you want/need.
  2. ESTIMATE: You will be sent an estimate containing the estimated cost and parameters of the project.
  3. DESIGN + CONTENT CREATION: Depending on the depth of the project, the timeframe for this stage will vary. Once your project has been developed to completion or an earlier agreed upon phase, you will be provided a proof for your approval.
  4. PROOFING: These can be digital or paper representations of the final piece. Your approval will be required to complete or move the project forward. This is your opportunity to make changes or corrections.
  5. FINAL CHANGES: Once we receive your notes from the proof, we will create the final piece.
  6. FINAL PROOFS: If changes were made, you will be required to re-proof the final piece.
  7. OUTPUT: You will be provided the final files, your files can be sent directly to print with us or any vendor of your choosing.

Who owns the project, once it is complete?
