Designers are problem solvers first and artists second. If a person is not detail-oriented or an analytical thinker, you’re they aren’t going to be an effective designer. The Presentation Workshop was started to help those who are considering a design career. Whether you’re in high school, college, or considering a change in career, we’re here to help! Our primary goal is education — from 15 second tips and tricks to creating case studies and design processes. Our client projects result in lessons for those who are interested in learning the ins and outs of being an effective designer.
Every project begins with a questionnaire. This allows me to gain an understanding of your project and ultimate goals. I take each inquiry into careful consideration: How passionate you are about the project? Do you have a clear understanding of your goals? Do you show an interest in working with me, in particular?
Establishing Trust and Roles
It’s important that you and I have a mutual trust and well-defined roles. You should feel confident in my ability create a product that meets your requirements. Likewise, I should feel confident that the you will provide those requirements.
You, my client, have a clear understanding of your marketplace and target audience. So you should be willing and able to provide goals and content for the project. It is my job to take the goals we have established and deliver an impactful solution.
Establishing goals is crucial to delivering a solid final product. This is a thorough discussion and covers the information necessary to complete the project.
The goal of each project is to provide you value. Because of this, we need to have honest and upfront conversations about the project. Hesitation to request clarification or ask questions could result in misunderstood or undefined goals.
Throughout the consultation, the primary focus is not money. the focus is on my understanding of what the project complexity and requirements are. Generally, we can determine an initial quote from the questionnaire. However, further consultation may be required.
Proposal and Agreement
At this point, I will write up a proposal with project outlines, cost, and terms. Once I have your approval, a 50% down payment is required before I begin.
Research and Sit-downs
During this phase of the process, we sit down and talk in detail about the story you’re trying to tell. We discuss your target audience and why your product should matter to them. Any initial thoughts I may have on how to efficiently reach your goals will be covered during this meeting.
Sketching & Development
Sketching allows me to shape your story quickly. This part of the process is a discovery phase we explore ideas and gain a deeper understanding of the subject matter.
Once sketching is complete, MORE TEXT NEEDED
Final Review and Adjustments
The final concept is reviewed and I’ll complete any needed adjustments during this process.
Delivery & Follow-up
Once the final invoice has been paid, I’ll send the deliverables to you.
After delivery, I’ll answer any questions you have about using the deliverables. Also, we can discuss any further needs you may have.
I like to get feedback from you! I want to know how things went so I can continue to improve my process.
