Our Process


Great design starts with thorough understanding of who you are and what your business is about. Understanding your needs is the first step to creating a great brand identity and to do this we provide you with a brief to complete.

We want to know more about your objectives, schedule and deadlines, deliverables and more. A good brief manages expectations and is used as a reference for our designers, ensuring we meet your goals.


The value of a design project varies for each client so knowing your budget or how much you are prepared to spend gives us a good place to start. We make every effort to develop the best pricing structure to suit your business needs and will provide you with a detailed quote including a breakdown of details and costs involved.

Once you are happy with the agreed pricing a quote is signed off before the design process begins.


Now that we know more about who you are and what you want - plus some research of our own, we put our ideas into action and start creating design concepts.


A design concept gives you a first look at our ideas accompanied by a mock up. It's not the end result but gives you a representation of how the final product may be. Feedback is encouraged at this stage making sure we are on track and in line with your brief.


One of the essential parts of the design process is refining a concept. We take on board your feedback and make changes as required to the chosen concepts.


After design changes and alterations have been made the final step involves signing off on the project giving approval to go ahead with the final product.


Once you are completely satisfied with the outcome and the project is signed off on, you are supplied with final designs including files, printing and shipping.
