our process

There is a lot that goes into the design process, but we strive to make it a fun and enjoyable collaboration with our clients. We are fortunate to get to play occasionally with coloured markers, scissors and glue. We've also been known to have paper airplane challenges at the studio (for client research of course). Not everyone gets to explore creativity in their job and that's why we want you to be a part of this process as a team.  Although, not every stage of design is using craft supplies we have outlined our process below to help you understand what we do and exactly how we work together. 

FIRST - LET'S MEET

We want to get to know you, your business and its vision. You will be asked to answer a simple questionnaire that will allow us to determine your exact needs. After we meet we develop and send you a creative brief to ensure we are on the right track along with a detailed estimate. Once we receive your "let's get started" email/phone call a timeline and contract that coincides with your deadline is produced. Upon your approval we are ready to roll!
