THE PROCESS

We will discuss your design requirements with you via phone, email or if complex, arrange to meet you for a first consultation before commencing any work. You will be given a detailed quote explaining the design and production stages required to complete your items and how payments are structured.

It speeds the process to have as much information as possible before we supply an individual quote.

It may help to clarify your thoughts by filling in our Client Design Questionnaire.

 

Once we have all the information, imagery and settings needed to start we create digital visuals usually pdfs, with explanatory notes if necessary. Sometimes we meet to explain our thinking, but mostly the initial stage of designs is emailed, this can be followed up with a phone call to help guide you through decision making process.

 

We will ask you to either explain any changes you require or approve the design in writing before moving to the next stage. There is usually one set of minor revisions allowed for in quotes given. If we think the changes are more time consuming and will involve extra cost we will discuss with you any implications involved to check you are happy with this before commencing.

 

Once we have your approval in writing we will prepare the designs for print or web publication. We don’t want to rush you through this stage as it is really important you are satisfied with how the design works before printing or publishing.

 

With design for print, we can then give you links to our bank of reliable printers and send you the artwork or upload artwork for you, for you to make direct payments with the printer, or send artwork to a printer you may already have a relationship with, whichever works best for you.
