A project brief is formed by asking questions, carrying out research and experiencing the service or product first hand. This enables us to determine the project aims and define the target audience.
The project brief is analysed and researched. This forms the basis for experimentation that leads to the creation of concepts. Creative thinking and problem solving allows us to generate solutions that answer the project brief in a unique manner.
The design concept takes form as it is developed and applied to the appropriate media and relevant formats. Consistency is key to ensuring branding and messaging achieves the goal of maintaining a strong identity.
