We use a simple process. It is designed to ensure that project teams and client organisations are fully engaged from the outset and that there is a level of transparency to the design process, so they stay involved and can buy into the solutions as they are developed.
Understand and plan
No matter what the project is, we firstly study what you already have, your aspirations, competition and talk to your customers, clients and stakeholders. Based on this, we develop a creative brief that sets our the project objectives and process for how they will be met.
Then we can explore different creative directions. Team brainstorming and client workshops are also used to help generate of a body of conceptual design work for review by the project team.
Following your feedback, we refine our concept and apply it to all elements, with an open dialogue about budgets. We assess costs and fine tune concepts in-line with your expectations.
We create artwork, specify materials, develop programming, produce schedules and prepare guidelines and manuals. These are used in tendering processes to appoint contractors, then assist them during implementation.
You can have the best design, but unless it is produced as a quality piece of work our efforts will have been in vain. We are involved in quality control throughout. As well as supporting you throughout roll out, we work on site and in-factory to ensure our high standards are met.
Our goal is always to develop long term client relationships, so a job is not finished once it's built or produced. Once complete, we remain on hand to advise you as the brand and scheme evolves.
