OUR PROCESS


Good design starts off with a thorough understanding of what the design is intended to do. Empathising prevents any assumptions that may exist. By defining we get a good idea of what is to be achieved. Now the process of generating ideas comes into play. Here is where we start to think “outside the box”. Rough sketches are made by hand or designed using vector based design software. Once our basic design is in place, we start looking at colours and various other elements. The design will now go into a test phase ensuring compatibility with the desired medium or platform.

  • Empathise – Getting a good idea of what is required
  • Define – Putting together the information gathered.
  • Ideate – Generate ideas based on our definitions.
  • Sketch – Starting with the basics.
  • Colourise – Using psychological colour theories.
