How We Work


For slide presentations:
  1. Send us your PowerPoint, data or content files that need visual enhancement and/or formatting. Clearly delineate all breaks in slides if in one file. Slide 1, Slide 2, etc.  If images or graphics are to be included on slide, put the name of the image in bold at the bottom (or next to the the copy it’s illustrating).
  2. Through email or a phone call, provide instructions, specifications and turnaround information and any other pertinent information.
  3. Your presentation will be designed based on your needs, using custom-designed templates specific for your company or organization. We may discuss the project along the way if we have any questions or see issues.
  4. Your completed deck will be delivered based on requested schedule for review and feedback.
  5. Further enhancements and revisions may be requested.
  6. Then go and knock their socks off.
For web design:
  1. If you have an existing site, provide us with the URL and the reason you are updating or redesigning the site. Ie.  “I hate it,” “It’s old looking,” “It’s not mobile ready,” etc. If it’s a new site let us know.
  2. We’ll find some time to discuss either in person or on the phone. If you have a sitemap, great, send it over.  If you do not know what a sitemap is, let us know and we’ll provide one for reference.
  3. Then we will provide you with an estimate. If we decide to work together, awesome.
  4. We’ll need to get content from you.  Logos, images, copy, etc. As well as any ideas that you have in mind for the design (colors, graphics, images, etc.).
  5. We then will provide you with page layouts and when you’ve approved the look off we’ll go.
  6. While your site is being crafted, we will periodically let you see updates to make sure we are on the same page (pun intended).
For print design:
  1. Before starting in on a printed piece, ask your self what will it be used for.  Is it a one-time job for a trade show? About a specific product? Or will this have multiple uses. As a leave behind, a piece to be mailed, etc. Will it accompany other materials? Often a printed piece, designed once, can have extended uses.
  2. If it will be mailed in an envelope, will it fit in a standard-sized one? Constructing non-standard envelopes can be expensive.
  3. When looking at the copy and image content, is there anything that will date the piece somewhere down the road.  If so, try to replace (or retouch).
  4. Have print quality logos, charts, and images before starting in. Images taken off your web site will more than likely not reproduce well in print.
  5. Do you have a branded look? If so have some materials on hand for reference so any new materials keep to your branded look.
  6. Will it be printed locally? Substantial cost saving can be had by looking further afield. Also you can print larger quantities (even double) for just a small amount more.
  7. And lastly, try to have all materials together at the beginning which will make the project run smoother.
