The first step in any project is putting the kettle on. Once everyone is sat down with a brew, be it in a meeting, over the phone or even email we can really get into what you want from me. I understand that every client that walks in the door is utterly unique, so it’s at this stage that it’s really important for me to get an idea of who you are and what you need to achieve with your project. The expert in the room here is you, so I’ll be the one sat with notepad in hand trying to learn everything I can so that I can give you exactly what you want. This process can go on for as long as you need it to, only once your satisfied that I have a good understanding of your project, can we move on to step two.
This is really the meat of the process. I call this step scribbles because that's exactly what I start with, slowly building up an idea into something you begin to see as your own. It’s vitally important for me to keep you in the loop at every step of the process, so I'll be firing loads of ideas your way to being with. Once we have narrowed the ideas we want to run with I'll eventually move on to computer aided graphics where you can get a real sense of how the finished product is going to turn out.
Often integrated with step two, this is all down to you; I need to know what you think! I’ve found that my clients can sometimes be concerned about shooting down an idea that they can see I'm obviously fond of, but really don’t worry, I’ve built up a thick skin over the years and saying you hate something is just as useful as saying you love it. Besides, if I genuinely think you’re making a mistake then I’ll let you know about it and give you a good understanding of why.
The last step is the easiest and the most fun, actually receiving your finished creation. After all, by this point you should be well acquainted and utterly in love with it. I'll make sure that any billing and invoices are sorted and upto date, and pack up everything for delivery. It’s often the case that I help my clients implement their products, so if you’re looking for web hosting, or need the perfect finish on some print work then I'm more than happy to place orders on your behalf. If you require it I'll even send you a hard copy of all your work through the mail for safe-keeping!
