— My design approach
Like many other designers there is a process I follow in order to create high quality work that meets the objectives set at the beginning of the project. Here are the steps:
Setting the Brief
This is a critical stage of discovery and leaning, which consists of a discussion between client and designer. This stage enables me to understand the business I am designing and get to know who I will be working with. We will work together to identify and agree project objectives, deliverables, deadlines and budget etc.
Research & Ideas
I will then review all the information from the briefing and begin looking at competitors, trends etc which could influence the ideas. I will select and develop the strongest ideas and present them to the client explaining my thought process and evaluating against the brief. Feedback from the client will follow.
Any amendments are made the the chosen visuals and submitted for sign off. Once the client is happy, which is the most important part, I will supply all final artwork files, or supply to the printer.
Finalisation & Delivery
This is the most rewarding part. Once you are happy, which is the most important part, I will supply all final artwork files, 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 to work together.
Throughout the project I like to have key deadlines for each stage, this keeps the project on time and on budget. Communication is key throughout the design process by both myself and the client, I welcome any feedback and questions you may have.
