How We Work
The first step to any successful project is getting a clear understanding of your needs, expectations and time parameters for completion. After this initial consultation, we will develop a proposal detailing the parameters, a plan of action, and a cost breakdown of the project with timeline milestones for delivery and payment.
Once both sides have agreed to the terms outlined in the proposal, Graphicus will provide you with a contract to sign and require a 1/3rd deposit on larger jobs or a 1/2 deposit on smaller jobs to begin working. This process is very important, as it clearly communicates between your business and Graphicus what will determine your project's success.
Concept Development & Research
This is where the fun begins! We extensively research and develop a conceptual approach to handling your project and develop outlines, comps, and mock-ups. This can be a back and forth process with you, as we work to finding the best possible solution.
Once we have agreed upon the conceptual development, our team begins production. This part of the process and timing varies widely, depending upon the type of project and scope of work.
Graphicus typically allows for 3 rounds of revisions to each project, unless otherwise agreed upon. Further changes after that are charged at our hourly studio rate.
Final mechanicals, website uploading and/or file preparation is created and printed, posted or published to the web and your project is complete!
