01. Inquiry Stage

This starts when you contact us through our fabulous contact form found here.  We’ll get back to you within 24 hours. We’ll send you our client on-boarding form. It’s a pretty simple questionnaire so that we can get a better idea of what it is you need and want from us. We only do a limited number of revisions so be sure to be clear about what you want.

Over the past 10+ years we've definitely learned what questions to ask so we know how best to help you and in turn, help us help you. Lots of helping.

02. Booking Stage

After that initial questionnaire is filled out and returned, we send a follow up email with any more questions we have to clarify things, THEN when that's all done we’ll send over a design proposal with the nitty gritty of your design project and available project dates.

Once, you’ve put your stamp of approval on the proposal we send over the contract and invoice to make things official. With the contract signed and the invoice paid, we can start the design party.

03. Working Stage

For most smaller projects, we’re able to jump right in right after the invoice is paid. We’re ready for you! We’ll send you drafts of your project, and then get feedback from you. 

For bigger projects like Branding and Web Design we have some client homework that needs to be done.

There are a few more questions and assignments for you to do to prepare for the project. It includes gathering inspiration for the project on a Pinterest board as well as answering some more in depth questions about your business and brand. Yep, more questions. They're not our favorite either, BUT until we develop the power to read minds, it's our best option to know what you’re thinking.

The quicker you’re able to respond, the quicker we can get things done!

The Branding Process

goes a little something like this...

  • 1 We'll create a few different rough layouts. If you will just look at the concepts and let me know what grabs your attention we can start building your logo from there. Generally we'll I will put together 3-5 rough ideas and they'll be different shapes to see what direction you want to go.
  • 2 We'll send over some more rough layout concepts and start adding in some font options. You can let us know again, what grabs your eye, and we'll continue narrowing down the design.
  • 3 With the layout being finalized and font options being whittled down, color is the last thing for us to explore.
The Web Design Process

goes a little something like this...

  • 1 First, we'll need to narrow down your site layout. What pages you'll need and specific sections that you want on your site. Most importantly you'll need to have the copy (all the words) for your site done. (If you don't have this or want to do it, let us know, we've got an awesome copywriter)
  • 2 We'll get the fonts, colors, and home page layout done first. We'll start with a rough draft and then make edits and adjustments until we get what you want.
  • 3 Once you've approved the homepage we'll work on building out the rest of your site. And making sure we've got the photos, copy, and layouts that you love.

04. Wrapping Up

For graphic design projects we’ll send over your completed design. 

For branding projects we send over ALL the design files in a number of formats so that you’ll have everything you need to get your branding in place and for any future uses you might need them for.

For web design, once you’ve approved the design, we get everything on the main site, go through and make sure everything is working and linked up right, and then launch it! We'll also do a video walk through of your site so you understand what is what.
