The Next Steps | Graphic Design

Hey hey!


If you've found your way to this blog post, it's probably because you've already had a look at the overview of our services, and are getting ready to dive into the next step - in which case, you're in the right spot!



We have three basic steps that we move through during our design process. Have a read through them below.






1. GETTING STARTED

Integral to our services is great communication - your project is handled with care by our admin team, as we set up a virtual meeting and send out a quick questionnaire to get to know you, and what you'd like from us.


The more info that you can supply us with, the better. This is the part where we need to see right inside your brain, and as much as we try to be mind-readers, a hint or two does help us along!

So we'll be asking you for information on things like colours, motifs, and symbols. We'd love if you could send through brands/businesses/logos/websites that you LOVE - aspects that you aspire to incorporate in your own brand's vision.


All of this gives us an idea of the general visual that you're keen on encapsulating, and we use it as a springboard to jumpstart our own creative processes of imagining up how we can best tell YOUR brand's story in a unique and meaningful way.

2. THE DESIGN PROCESS

We take your ideas and shape them into mood-boards and design proposals. We love this stage - crafting colour palettes, bringing together design elements - and presenting you with something that truly represents YOU and your brand.

We understand that there is MORE here - that great branding ties into GREAT storytelling. And that your brand is more than just colours and symbols.

Which is why we have a fairly extensive questionnaire process during step one - we want to hear all about the underlying aspects you'd like your brand to convey - INTEGRITY, HONESTY, AUTHENTICITY for example.


We're with you each step of the way - sending through drafts for approval, checking in on your thoughts as to how the elements are shaping up, and making sure you're 100% happy with each step before we move on to the next one.


3. THE ROLL OUT


Approved designs are rolled out onto the elements you've selected - logos, brand collateral, packaging, websites and more.


We cannot wait to craft your very own corner of the internet, to truly showcase your business.




Just in case you needed a recap, here's the elements we can make for you:
  1. LOGOS Are you starting from scratch? Or maybe rebranding? We'll guide you through every step of the way of creating a beautiful logo to make your brand stand out in a sea of competitors. There are so many reasons why your biz needs a fresh, bold and bright logo - here are our top ones.

  2. BUSINESS CARDS & EMAIL SIGNATURES We can roll out that gorgeous logo onto all of the elements that tell your brand's story - so that when you pop up in client's email boxes they'll be sure to take notice.

  3. WEBSITE DESIGN Websites are our absolute FAVE! We love creating digital spaces that are representative of you, your brand, or your business - places that you are PROUD to send to potential clients. Our graphic design team specialises in putting together gorgeous design proposals, bringing together your chosen colour palettes, typography and brand awareness into one amazing website layout.

  4. WEBSITE IMPLEMENTATION & BUILD The next step is to take that design proposal and BUILD you a website - and we have a tech team that can do just that! Yup, landing pages, online stores, URL and SEO activation, and so much more! We can't wait to create the website of your dreams.

  5. OTHER DESIGN ELEMENTS What something a little extra? We can design packaging items, rate cards, instagram story templates, facebook banners, adverts and infographics (read up a bit more here about why infographics are the new hot ticket item that you need!). Need something that's not on this list? Pop us an email and let's see if we can help you!
