creative process

Engaging a professional designer might seem daunting, but it really needn’t be. I believe a collaborative approach is the way to go as no-one knows your business like you do. Below is an general outline of the typical process involved in a design project with us. This process can vary slightly for other design projects but provides a good overview of what to expect.

01 / conversation

After your initial inquiry, we will set up a phone, video call or even better an old fashioned face to face coffee date (my favourite) if you’re Melbourne bound. I will ask you some questions regarding your business, vision and goals for your brand and/or design, as well as allowing you to ask any questions for me. This will help me get a better idea of exactly what you’re after and the direction you’re wanting to head. If necessary, I will have you fill out a questionnaire to make sure I can provide you with a detailed quote.

02 / join the team

So once we work out exactly what we want and the direction we wish to head, I’ll put together a full quote based on the project and send it your way. Once everything prepared is approved by you, just sign to approve and send back. I then kindly ask you to complete the deposit payment amount (via deposit or PayPal). Please note that this deposit is non-refundable. Based on the project total, I do allow payment plans depending on what you’re comfortable with.

03 / inspiration + research

Once the deposit has been paid and the quote has been signed, I will get you to create and send through a detailed Pinterest board that includes all the imagery that inspires you, this may include patterns, colours, interiors etc. I will also combine a few images/ideas on to this board for you to make sure we are both heading in the same creative direction.

04 / creation

Now that we have established and finalized your inspiration board, I will then get to work on creating the first draft of work. I’ll send through a deliverable for you to review and you will be able to request up to 2-3 rounds of revisions until you’re completely happy with the work.

05 / final touches + delivery

Once you’re happy with where the work is at, I’ll start prepping the final files for you and I will send you over the final invoice for the project. Once your approval is received and your final payment is made, I will package up your files and send them to you via a Dropbox link to download. For any print jobs, they will be delivered in print ready PDF documents for you to forward to your printer.
