We have expanded our design studio and have a few new bums on seats. We can now offer more than just our normal artwork support, with full design services too! If you have any design overflow requirements or want to try a new design flavour, why not give us a try!
A good graphic design process ensures you get the highest quality solution and service for your project. There are four main steps involved between you and our design team.
The briefing stage consists of an Initial discussions between us and you covering design objectives, timing and budget. This is a kick off discussion to clarify your vision - what is it that you want?
*What is the Look/Feel you want?
*What Imagery/Graphics will you be supplying?
*What Text is needed?
*Any specific corporate guidelines?
Whilst we will do the grunt work, it will help if you can supply is reference images and even simple doodle drawings / sketches. We will need an idea of your vision of the finished product to help steer us through the design.
The next step is for the designer to review the brief, and get a clear understanding of what source files and design assets you will be providing. We will develop the draft concepts and initial designs based on your guidance. We will present ideas and visual solutions and explain design direction. Some clients like to be very involved with the design direction and be heavily involved. Others prefer to take a back seat and let is drive the design. We are happy and comfortable with both styles. Together you will discuss the visual mock up’s against the brief. Following your review and feedback, we will amend the design as required and, if necessary, presents you with new design(s).
From here, the designer will prepares the artwork files and provides a virtual proof (PDF / JPEG or similar). You either approve the artwork by signing the proof, or mark-up changes you’d like to make. A further proof is provided if required. Any “author’s corrections” (client requested changes to content already provided which may include additional charges: these should be detailed in any quote conditions provided with your initial quote).
Finally, the designer will forward the print ready artwork to production ready for printing. We will review the printer’s pre-flight proofs and pass on to you for final checking / approval.
