Process

We work closely with our clients to ensure each project moves along smoothly. Our process starts by clarifying our client’s goals through in-person meetings, research, and by gaining insights from the end-users of the design. Part of this process involves understanding what impact the design needs to make. Then we use a range of design strategies to determine how the design will look, function, and connect with intended audiences, whether the design be a website, printed document, or exhibition. Finally, we craft and implement the final design, providing guides when necessary to help clients implement updates that ensures the design will responsive to their future needs.
