The Design Process
My process can follow that of architects or work completely on its own.
Research, analysis, planning, and concepting get a project started. Final output is a desired design direction, nomeclature review, and locations desired placement locations for items.
Working through the finer details of the design direction, I give my clients the best options to fit the project. Deliverables include approved typography, material & methods for build, size, shape, and general design asthetic.
From here I work with fabricators, developerrs, and vendors to price out the desired design. I take those numbers and value engineer the project into your budget, developing final design intent documents that descirbed exactly what we want the vendors to create.
Here is where I verify the design we worked to build is implemented correctly, on-time, and on-budget. I'll be in the thick of work answering questions and verifying design decisions.
