Our Process

We follow a thought out and tested process for all of our client’s projects.

Each step of the process has defined inputs and outputs. Within the steps, we perform the necessary activities to meet the project objectives. After all that is taken care of, we get on with the exciting stuff: the work.

We follow our process with each and every project we accept, no matter the complexity or budget. Here are our steps…

Discover: Every project, regardless of its type or size, begins with a discovery phase. These foundation-laying steps are imperative to the development of a meaningful design that works for your audience.

Research: This critical step covers acquiring market insight about the customer, the business, and the competitive landscape. We take all submitted material from the discovery stage; conduct additional research, while applying our years of industry expertise, to work towards defining your organization’s unique communication needs.

Plan: It may not seem like it to most, but this is the fun part, developing the big idea, the creative and the look and feel. Integrating together the information obtained in the first two stages, we create a customized ‘goals and objectives’ plan for your organization in this stage – a one page strategic marketing plan.

Create: In this stage, our creative professionals use all of the information gathered to date to generate a wide range of conceptual approaches. Our team will then identify the most successful approach in meeting the goals and objectives that were determined during the planning stage.

Measure: Here is where we do a post-launch impact measurement, refinement, and the execution of ongoing activities. We conduct a post-program analysis of the results and this enables us to create tangible evidence of where it succeeded and where it can be improved.
