The Design Process
How the Graphic Design Process Works
Finding the designer that fits your company is crucial to a successful design campaign. So you’ve reviewed our online portfolio, and you love our style? The next step is that we “meet,” by phone or in-person, to discuss your objectives and your business. Our first session is complementary. Now is the time to decide if you feel comfortable working with Dayzign Graphics.
Getting to Know You
We want to know as much about you and your business as possible. Our forté is in understanding your goals and your market, and translating them into your company image. It helps to not only hear what you have to say, but also to see examples of designs that you like and dislike, to get a better idea of your taste. It’s a great idea to bring three to five examples of designs you like to your first meeting. These could be other websites or logos you like, font examples, illustration styles, CD covers, pages torn from magazines – whatever gives us a feel for your taste.
The Graphic Design Proposal
Following our initial discussion, Dayzign will provide you with an estimate for your project. Should you accept the proposal, the design process begins with the receipt of your design examples, your signed contract and your 50% deposit. Dayzign will let you know what is needed in the way of materials to begin the job, such as photos or text for your website. At this point, a thorough client interview will provide Dayzign with further insight into your company, its products or services, and its market.
“Dayzign begins with a client interview, we listen, and then we dream …”
Designing your Project
Within an established timeline, Dayzign will next provide you with your first round of designs. This is when your project comes to life. We work carefully to sculpt the image that is right for you. A design must not only be attractive and user-friendly, it must also accurately represent your brand to your market, and strive to represent you as the ONLY choice for their needs.
After your design has been perfected with your feedback, Dayzign will coordinate whatever publishing format you need, be it print or online. This ensures the correct outcome of your product. This is your time to enjoy the fruit of your vision and labor.
Regarding the Budget:
“The more informed you are as a client about what things cost, the more effective you can be in guiding a project. If you identify and articulate your objectives, see that the design team has access to what it needs from you, have a detailed budget and schedule to measure progress with … there is no reason that you won’t be able to enjoy the design process as much as the end product.”
