STEP ONE: Get in touch!
Click on HIRE US and fill out the project planner. We’ll be able to see where you fit in our schedule after looking at your needs. Expect a response within 24 hours – or Monday morning, if you contact us over the weekend.
STEP TWO: Meeting
We’ll “meet” via skype or the phone – whichever works better for you. We’ve found that some face-to-face time is a good thing for getting to know one another. If you decide to move forward with us, you’ll receive a custom proposal, followed by a contact and deposit. All documents can be signed easily online and we accept payment online too, via Freshbooks and PayPal, or by check.
STEP THREE: Homework
Fair warning: this stage has the most work for you. Your homework will begin with the Down to Details form that allows us to get to know your personal preferences. That way, we can craft a personalized process that works well for you and your schedule. Read more about your Homework here.
STEP FOUR: Brand Board
The creative work begins! We will take your ideas and thoughts and add them together with ours, creating up to three brand boards for you to choose from.
STEP FIVE: Logo
We’ll take your preferred brand board and begin the logo development process. You’ll receive 3 main concepts. If none of those speak to you (this rarely happens!), we will provide you with a second round of concepts to choose from. Two rounds of revisions are included at each stage.
STEP SIX: Collateral
Which is really just a fancy term for print pieces! Depending on your needs, we will then move on to business card design and the design of other print pieces. 2 rounds of revisions are included.
STEP SEVEN: Web Design
We’ll start with the home page, mocking up your content to make it shine. 2 rounds of revisions are included. Then we’ll move onto the interior pages and another round of revisions. Then, we build, we revise together one last time, and then it’s launch time!
