The Branding Design Process
We meet at our studio, over the phone or via zoom and chat about what you need for your business in terms of branding. Here, we dive deep into your business, values, target market, what you want for your brand, what you love & don't. We ask a lot of questions - but we aren't just curious, we want to make sure we really know what you need and want.
At this point we get you to create a secret Pinterest board to build a moodboard of images you like. We will also do a bit research about your industry and market. Once this all done we will complete our discussion for your branding so we have a concrete idea in mind.
A finalised quote will be sent and your 50% payment will be due here.
The fun part starts here. We will go away and brainstorm what we have discussed. And then begin on the first proof of your logo. This proof will include the concept with several variations to choose from.
From here we refine your choice and continue with any extra add ons that your package includes. This might include the secondary logo, business card and other marketing collateral.
Once all your artwork is approved. The final 50% of your payment owing is due. And then we can release all your files to you, or get anything requiring printing off to print.
You'll be ready to launch your new brand!
The Website Design Process
We meet at our studio, over the phone or via zoom and chat about how we can create a website for you and what you need. We ask a lot of questions - but this is to get a really good understanding of what the website needs to do for your business, who will the customers be, what your business is about and the product and or service you are selling.
We also discuss things like what your customers might search to find you online, your competitors & the market, any specific features or add ons you require, and how you will like your website to look and function.
At this point we will draw up a pretty big sized proposal for based on all of the above with what we have discussed, plus our ideas for how we can plan out your website. We also include not only the design cost, but what you will expect for your hosting & domain name costs so there are no hidden costs. Once approved your 50% payment will be due here.
Once we have received your content & photos ( if required ) we will begin on the first proof of your website based on our discussions. This proof is generally the homepage layout only to give you an overall idea of how the website will look, and will include all the colours and fonts used.
From here we will continue with the extra pages of your website ( if required ), and do any refinements. This may include beginning the setup of your ecommerce shop too if this is included in your package.
Once all your website is approved. The final 50% of your payment owing is due. This is where we can release the login to your website, and also help you set up the domain name, hosting and any email addresses. Every package also includes our help with setting up Google Analytics which is handy for seeing where your customers are finding you.
You'll be ready to launch your new website!
“Kelly created an outstanding website for us. She was very good at listening to understand what we wanted, and then bringing the brand to life, visually. Her communication was fantastic and she always went the extra step to make sure we were happy. We had so much fun working together, it's a shame the website is finished. Highly recommend!”
