1. PROJECT INQUIRY:
Making contact is the first step. Begin the design process by emailing the project idea directly to the designer and arranging a consultation in person or telecom.
2. CREATIVE BRIEF:
Define the project by completing the Creative Brief which will outline the type of project and its format, materials, and content. Gather ideas by looking at other examples in the same field. Submit design details and visual references.
3. QUOTE & DEPOSIT:
Receive an estimate from the designer based on the Price Guide.
Submit a non-refundable retainer to the designer as the design process begins.
4. PRESENTATION & REVIEW:
Receive the designer’s creation of the project in PDF format for analysis. This is the client’s opportunity to review all the content and make notes of changes, edits, omissions, additions, etc. The designer will revisit the design and apply all changes required. This process may be repeated until all factors are complete. Most projects are allowed up to three revisions without additional charges.
5. PUBLISH, PRINT & POST:
Upon completion, the designer resubmits the artwork for a final art approval. Once approved, the final invoice is submitted, deducting the deposit. When the final payment is received, the client’s hi-res, print-ready files are uploaded to a private Google Drive folder for the client to access. Once downloaded, the client may publish, print and post!
