Ever wonder what it's like to work with a branding designer? Here's our process laid out for you to review before working with us!

STEp 1:

Quote & Securing Your Spot

Using our management system, we will send you a quote, our terms, & a payment schedule (if desired), as well as an invoice option. This is sent to the email you provide for us and will have all the details about what is included in your price, when/how to invest, and what next steps need to be taken.

Once you're ready to start your project, you'll be asked to complete a non-refundable deposit that will secure your spot in our design queue.


Step 2:

Gathering Inspiration

After we receive your signed contract and deposit, we will send you an invite via Trello to a shared board. There you'll find Cards where you can share imagery, original files, comments, inspiration, and more. This allows you to communicate your needs, helps us get inside your brain, and ultimately meet your expectations effectively.


Step 3:

Design begins!

Once we gather inspiration, we will begin constructing your imagery. We begin the process of most designs in a sketchbook with rough concepts and then digitize and manipulate those images into a first round of 3 total concepts. This is still in the early stages, so often the final is much different, but this helps us once again, get inside your brain.

We will add these design drafts to the Trello board so that you can add your own comments and critiques about which avenue to pursue.


settling on your favorite and honing in.

This step is when we move into editing rounds 2 & 3. By the end of 3, we'll have arrived at your final design! Final honing in on details will finish up our process and you'll get to see your final design.

STEP 4:


FINAL INVOICE SENT

At this time, you will be sent an invoice (unless payment plan has been established) to fulfill prior to receiving your final logo files. This invoice will be sent via our managing system, or you can access it via the original quote link.

STEP 5:


Ready for final Files

When final payment is process, we will add your final files to the Trello board, where you can download your pieces as soon as you're ready for them! Files most often include .pdf, .jpeg, .ai, & .png, but additional types can be requested at a small fee.

STEP 6:


We're finished!

You now have a fully-fledge brand update, or logo design, or opt-in design for your small business. We love to share and promote our clients' designs across our social platforms, so this is the time for you to share as well! You can find us on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, & more.
