process

Melding small firm attentiveness with large firm capabilities.

 

We’ve developed a tailored process for our branding and communication projects. Its foundation is open communication, it evolves through collaboration, and generates great results.

 
 
 

Where do we start? 

 
 

first

With You.

How do you reach your clients? How do you tell your story? How do you engage your audience? First, we listen and learn from you. Then we ask questions to help us develop the best strategy.


 

second

Collaboration.

It’s time to generate ideas. We approach design as a collaborative process. At studio L. you work directly with the designer. This means we are mindful of a project’s status and budget at every stage and we believe continuous communication is key to keeping projects on target. We also collaborate with other designers, illustrators, photographers and copywriters to contribute to the highest level of creativity for each project as needed.  


third

Deliver.

We handle every project from concept through delivery, including coordinating a project’s end production. Be it printing (offset, digital, letterpress) or programming, established vendor relationships will assure a smooth experience resulting in uniquely creative and mindful solutions that meet and just might exceed expectations. 


final

Evaluate.

Once a project is complete and reached its audience, we ask for feedback. We always want to know the successes and identify areas where we can improve.
