Six Steps

...to our design process

Consultation
The initial meeting is crucial. You get a chance to meet the people working on the project and we get an opportunity to drill down to the essence of what needs to be done. We talk plainly and honestly and will offer you the most suitable options for your business.

Budget and timelines
Based on our discussion, we'll produce costings up front with no hidden extras or unwelcome surprises further down the line. The all important production schedule is also a vital step in the process to keep everyone on track.

Research
As well as quizzing you, we’ll also research your market and your competitors. If you sell cars we want to drive them. If you bake cakes we want to taste them. (Tough life we know). This hands-on research informs the start of the creative process.

Concept and design
Everything begins with a strong idea. Beginning with sketches, we explore design solutions with the best going forward to be developed within the appropriate software. These layouts are then passed to you for your input and approval.

Development
Taking your feedback onboard, the designs are refined and developed into the finished artwork. We go through as many proofing stages as are required until approval is provided and everyone is happy.

Production and delivery
The same care and attention that went into the design is followed through all aspects of the production – something that we manage on your behalf. Quality control is paramount and rigourous checks ensure the successful delivery of all projects - on time and on budget, as promised.

Stand out from the crowd

While the web and other new media seem to dominate today’s marketing world, the printed publication can still play an essential role in marketing your business. Printed corporate brochures, informative newsletters, stunning stationery and other print materials give your customers a sense of the quality and attention to detail that runs through your products or services. Quality print can offer a vital distinguishing factor that differentiates you from your competitors.

We are highly experienced in delivering effective printed visual communications that are right for you and right for your audience. One of our most important skills doesn’t involve a computer or sketchpad; it’s listening to our clients.

We begin every project by asking questions and taking the time to learn about your business and objectives before starting the creative process.
