How I will work with you

Please have a think about the size of your project, and the time it will take to complete. Giving me ample lead time helps the managing of my workload and ensures your work gets the time and attention spent on it that it deserves. I work on a first come first served basis. If you need your project completed rapidly, please make a case for why and I will work with you to negotiate a reasonable delivery date. I understand that urgent projects come in for a variety of reasons, but please note that any quick turnaround projects which conflict with my existing deadlines may be addressed and discussed with you in order to establish priorities. Please be aware that it may not be possible to prioritise your project above my existing client’s deadline and I will inform you in a timely and open manner. Phone calls and meetings, where possible should be scheduled on a Wednesday, weekday evenings or weekends due to my other work schedules.

Setting the Brief

Analyse discover, research and collect information.
So, what makes you tick, what are you after? This is a critical stage of discovery and learning, which consists of a discussion between you, the client and me, the designer. This stage enables me to understand the business I am designing for and get to know who I will be working with. I will work together with you to identify and agree project objectives, deliverables, deadlines and budget etc.

Research & Ideas

Design and construction of ideas
I review all the information from the brief and begin looking at styles, competitors and trends which could influence the ideas. I will select and develop the strongest ideas and present them to you, explaining my thought process. Feedback from you will follow and I will always urge you not to hold back with any constructive criticism. I want you to be happy.

Development

Evolve the design, development & fine tuning
Together we will evaluate the concepts against the brief. Then any amendments are made to the chosen visuals and submitted for sign off. This is where the design really comes to life and it’s up to you to be as critical as you like in order to help me deliver you the best possible outcome for your project. It’s up to you to tell me what you like/dislike... don’t hold back... I don’t bite!

Finalisation & Delivery

Deployment of the finished product
This is the most rewarding part. Once you are happy, which is most important, I will supply all final artwork files or formats. Alternatively, I can liaise or supply to the printer. I like to build long-term relationships with all my clients, so once we have launched your project, we can both monitor the growth and impact and find other ways we can work together.
