Process

1. Sharpening the Axe – Strategy

This is where I get to know who you are, and your audience and discover how to set you apart from your competitors. I define your key messages, plan your communication strategy and build your brand story.

2. Cutting a Wedge – Design

With the positioning and strategy defined I move on to explore a range of bold and contrasting creative concepts. The focus is on finding relevant, meaningful and creative ways to articulate what you want to say.

3. Development – The Chop

With the preferred concept chosen I begin to develop the finer details of the design and apply it across all deliverables. Finally, I deliver artwork that is ready for commercial use.

4. Launch

I manage all areas of design production and ensure the best final outcome. The project is launched into the real world and I stay in regular contact to gauge its success post-launch.
