The Process.

Discovery
P1

I’ll gather information about your company and your project. I’m interested in your goals and objectives, your company’s capabilities and personality, and who your target audience is. The discovery phase sets the direction for the next step.

 

Development
P2

Here’s where ideas are visualized. The pencil meets the paper (or the mouse meets the pad). I’ll work up several creative concepts for you that are thoughtful solutions to your design problem—options that make sense and are a great fit for you.

 

Refinement
P3

From among the concepts presented, you’ll choose your favorite idea to focus on. Then we’ll work on refining it through a series of iterations until it’s prefect.

 

Final Production
P4

When you’ve approved the design, I’ll create the final artwork files and deliver them to you and/or your print vendor. If needed, I’ll contact printers for quotes and manage the printing process for you.
