Discovery


First.

SCROLL DOWN

Discovery


First.

The Discovery phase involves discussing, sharing, and gathering information relevant to the project at hand.

During this phase I learn as much as possible about your business, your industry, and most importantly, the people we are designing for–your clients. The outputs of this phase vary by project, but typically include: a discussion between you and I, a mind map demonstrating my understanding of the project at hand, and archetypes of the people we are designing for. The Discovery timeline varies depending on the amount of information needed for the specific project, it can take anywhere from an email, to a 2 hour meeting, to a couple weeks.

Ideation


Second.

Ideation


Second.

The Ideation phase begins with an assessment of the information gathered from the previous phase, and an additional gathering of inspiration and constraints (budget, spacial, timeframe, etc.).

Through a synthesis of these components, I will brainstorm design concepts that are creative, innovative, and meet your needs. This phase results in 2-3 concepts that include hand-sketches, photographic examples of possible construction/fabrication, and when appropriate, digital renderings. Ideation typically takes 3-4 weeks.


Iteration

At this point, we will either arrive at one concept to move forward with or we will continue to ideate until one concept is chosen. Simultaneously, we will be gathering the necessary written and visual content needed for the project.

Concept Development

Concept Development


Next.

The Concept Development phase involves refining the concept chosen from the Ideation phase.

The concept will be digitized (if not already) and fleshed out to a near final state. This phase results in the design represented in a [realistic as possible] prototype of the final form. Concept Development typically takes 2-3 weeks, depending on the outstanding written and visual content required for the design.

Pre-production


After that.

Pre-production


After that.

The Pre-production phase involves preparing the final design for production, as well as final decisions on the production/fabrication materials and production service provider.

This phase results in a "production-ready" design, and finalized production/fabrication specifications and service provider. Pre-production typically takes 1-2 weeks, depending on the scope and needs of the delivery or production process.

Delivery + Production Management

Delivery + Production Management


Last.

The Deliver/Production Management phase involves delivering the final design files to the necessary parties, as well as production of the design to it's final state.

This phase results in the final design produced/fabricated/installed! Delivery typically takes less than a week; the Production Management timeline is dependent on: material sourcing/availability, the third-party service provider, the shipping requirements, and installation requirements.
