The Design Cycle
We love to talk and get an idea for your business, and what type of design strategy suits your personality. We look at your business goals and objectives, your competitors and where you sit in that arena.
There’s nothing better than a good old fashioned pad and pen. Sketching of ideas is the next part of the creative process. This will give us a good idea of where we’re headed and we can run these ideas past you before we commit to pixels.
We take several ideas to screen and develop them further, testing colours, fonts and layouts. Many many years of experience mean we just have an eye for this kind of thing so we will only present you with ideas that we feel will work, based on our expertise.
Design often goes through several iterations for it to be just right. When we know we have the right design, we will still test several versions of it before going out into the wild. We always deliver your artwork in a variety of layouts and formats, to suit any possible use.
Good design is all about communicating your ideas in a moment. Today it’s more than that. Print is falling behind as a medium, giving way to digital devices, including billboards, bus stops, subways and many more traditional print formats. There are a million ways to reach your potential customers, but first, you need to catch their eye.
Our experienced graphic design team can translate your ideas to just about any medium & organise printing of your artwork.
