process makes practice
Our process begins with a period of research and rigorous situational analysis — examining the client’s project objectives, brand attributes, service initiatives, and historic perceptions — to build an essential knowledge base which becomes the foundation of a focused, strategic design solution.
Covering analysis and execution of studies, diagramming is a means by which we come to understand a design opportunity and a tool to chart the path, from beginning to desired end. Diagramming reveals useful information about scope, strategy, and tactical approach.
Effective design is additive. To help rationalize the creative process, we view the end solution along a pre- to post-experience continuum, ensuring that we combine the communication strategy and design into a holistic experience. This robust solution ultimately increases the chance to form a deeper, more sustained relationship with the consumer.
Before a design solution is activated, it is qualitatively evaluated for its potential efficacy. Questions of how and why the proposed strategy will work are addressed and provide valuable feedback regarding the design by highlighting areas that need adjustment as well as those that are working as intended.
Depending on synchronous movement of physical and virtual components, activation is the construction observation phase where the entirety of the property vision is actualized.
