A design project consists of following stages (unless otherwise agreed).
During the planning stage Peter Hinton Design will create the initial project proposal in addition to any elements that will enable you understand and visualise the final project; such as layouts, wireframes, and workflows. Once agreed they will be signed-off by the key stakeholders in the project to ensure we share a clear and common understanding from the onset.
The design stage involves the generation of a wide range of ideas and concept designs, working to the plan agreed in stage one so there should be no surprises. There is a lot of flexibility in this stage as concepts are created, reviewed, and refined.
The concept designs are reviewed and a checklist of outstanding tasks is agreed. Any 'out-of-scope' requirements that have come to light during the first 3 stages are discussed. Of course any major new work identified at this stage may impact the timescale agreed at the onset of the project.
During the production stage the final design of the project is produced ready for sign-off, this includes the addition of the final required content/copy/imagery.
Once the first 4 stages are complete, and client sign-off is provided, the project is finalised.
If the project involves digital design all required will be provided in the agreed formats. If the project requires printing, installation, or any other additional processes these will be completed during this stage.
The preferred method of contact is email. Other communication tools (including phone/conference calls, text messaging, Skype, Cisco Spark, WhatsApp, LinkedIn, and Facebook) can be used for general communications throughout the project if the client prefers. However, all documentation and invoices will be sent via email.
Whilst flexibility is at the heart of the Peter Hinton Design, experience suggests that it will help the smooth and effective delivery of the project if we can agree a few key assumptions at the onset to ensure that we share a common understanding of the process:
