Creative graphic design is at the heart of everything we do. We take the time to understand the goals of your project and then combine design, words and pictures to effectively communicate your message to your chosen audience.
We deliver well-written, well-designed communications that match and promote the same quality and attention to detail that runs through your products or services.
Our Annual Report Design Process
Highly experienced in delivering effective printed communications that are right for you and right for your target audience, one of our most important skills is listening to our clients. We begin each project by asking lots of questions and taking the time to learn about your business and objectives.
Following our discussions, we will produce clear plan with costings for your project, detailing what is included, what we expect from you, and what you can expect from us. There are a number of key stages in the process and we make sure you understand how the project will flow before you commit to anything.
We understand that creativity, imagination and impact are key, but not at the expense of delivering the right message. So, once we have the brief, out comes the sketchpad and the flow of ideas, mindful that the design has a job to do. We consider layout, colour, typeface and imagery in our search for the best way to present your information to your target audience(s). Only once we are happy that we have explored all options will we present you with a range of design concepts. This is one of the most time intensive stages of the creative process but experience has shown the value of putting in the time at this stage.
After we have presented you with a range of design concepts, the next stage is all about your comments and feedback. The designs are refined and updated, presented and re-presented, condensing the message and making it stronger. This process will continue until you are happy with the finished design, at no extra cost even if there are several rounds. Our fees are completely transparent so that you can be sure you won’t get any nasty surprises at the end of the job.
Once the design has been approved the final finishing touches are made. We have a full understanding of the technical side of the print process so our files meet the required standards. We work closely with our chosen suppliers to offer a seamless and continuous service from design through to production, ensuring that your print work will be perfectly produced and delivered, when and where you need it. Quality control is vital to ensure that your project is successfully delivered, on time, on budget and entirely to your satisfaction.
