We apply a great methodology

Phase One

Project Analysis, Consultation and Research

In this initial phase, we listen and note all the exact client's requirements. We discuss project time frames, key factors and the clients' budget for the required service or product. This phase is the ramp that takes us to the second phase, designing.

Phase Two

Design Concepts, Revisions and Finalisation

The second phase involves the beautiful process of converting the clients desired outcome into the seed of the creative solution. We present a variety of ideas that are, together with the client, tweeked, chopped and moulded into what will be something perfect for the client's brief.

Phase Three

Concept Execution and Creative Development

Depending on the service or product that you purchased, this is the phase where we roll up our sleeves and do all that it takes to develop the best possible outcome from our brief.

Phase Four

Testing before and after we test.

With our magnifying glasses on hand, with fine comb, spell check, proof read, measure, test, examine, trial run and do a standard checklist before we submit the clients' purchased product or service, so to make sure that all is order.

Phase Five

Product Submission or Service Finalisation

It is at this final stage that we hand over all that we have developed for the client and finalise all services for that particular brief. Maintainence plans and support systems become relevant at this stage to ensure that the client's satisfaction is stable at peak level.
