Working with the Chrome47 process
STEP 1: RESEARCH & DISCOVERY
First of all, we have to get to know each other and discuss what you want your site, logo, or printed material to accomplish. We will sit down and talk in person, on the phone, or on a videoconference to review a thorough questionnaire that reveals what your business is about.
STEP 2: WIREFRAMES & COMPOSITES
Hundreds of research-driven sketches are boiled down to the ones with the most potential. There are usually about three viable concepts that will be roughed out as composite designs or wireframes to establish basic concepts. This is probably the longest stage of the process.
STEP 3: PRODUCE & REFINE THE DESIGN
Once the wireframe or composite concept is approved, the design is refined and fleshed out. This is where colors, photos, and fonts are finalized and tweaks are made. With solid communication, two to three rounds of revisions is usually sufficient.
STEP 4: DELIVER & FOLLOW-UP
Final files are sent upon receipt of final payment, thus closing the project. This may mean a file gets emailed, a website goes live, or art is sent to a printer. While the project may be complete, it’s good to follow up and make sure the end product works as advertised. Does the work communicate clearly? We all want to be proud of our work.
A NOTE ABOUT FEES
An initial 50% is required to start the project. The remainder is due within 30 days of completion of the project and receipt of final invoice. Final files will be remitted upon receipt of final payment. Necessary materials such as existing logos or photos, shall be sent at the same time as initial payment. There is a 3% interest charge per 14-day period on late invoices.
What Are You Creating?
“I’ve worked with Brad several times over the last couple of years and he is an excellent designer. He always seems to get the look I’m going for after just a conversation. Brad is always professional, meets my deadlines and gives me and my church a quality product. If you are looking for excellence, Brad is your man.”James Henley, Youth Minister
“While I had an idea of the feel I wanted for my book covers, I only gave Brad a loosely articulated vision. He provided three very different options, and all of them nailed it. It was so hard to choose just one, but I’m thrilled with my final choice, and the design adapts perfectly across several books in the series!”Chris Niles, Author
“Working with Brad has been a complete pleasure. Not only does he have a great eye for graphic design, but he constantly communicates with you through the whole project. I wish more of my business interactions were this effortless.”Daniel Tomlinson, Entrepreneur, Tomlinson Cleaning
