We have developed a 5 part process which has enabled us to be
efficient in both time and cost.
Please view our process to
the right, browse our services pages /
portfolios and then give us a call at 210-588-9602 so that we can
sit down for a no-obligation initial
1 --- Discovery
This is the step where we sit down for a
meeting or initial conference call via phone. We give some
additional background about our company, what we can offer to you as
a client and show examples of past work.
Additionally, as a
key component of the entire process of the project, we will learn
about you, your company's background and the scope of design that you are
looking for from us. At the end of this step, we will agree on
terms and sign a design contract (50% of the design fee will be
required to start a project).
This step is critical in the development of
the project. This is where we do background research, view
your comparables from your questionnaire and learn more about your
field. We will gather information from you (i.e. photos, copy
and anything else we may need to complete the project). We
will also start creating mockups and layouts for the project.
This is a very fluid step with the client having ample time to
provide input... additionally, we may gather additional input from
you, the client.
This is the fun step.... the design!
This is the step where our creative juices are flowing and we are
doing the actual design. We take all of the information from
the previous steps and put them onto paper to layout the design
concepts. We work to create the feel and direction that your
brand is going to take!
Logos and print jobs
We will make concept sheets for logos and print work and we will
create fully-functional concept websites. All logo and print
jobs will yield concept sheets that are then emailed to the client
in .pdf format. Logo sheets will be the size of a sheet of
paper and will contain 5-6 numbered concepts (in full color).
Website concepts will be designed and then uploaded to Strottner
Designs' server. They will be available for the client to view
at www.strottner.com/clientfiles/yourcompany. Website
concepts are fully-functional and work just like a launched site....
only difference is they are in a private folder that the public will
You the client will be able to view the design
concepts from the previous step and will then provide feedback to
Strottner Designs. We will be available to answer questions
and help in the decision process with our professional opinions.
All projects come with 2 rounds of revisions so we will be glad to
tweak logos, rework wording on a brochure or change around pictures
on a website concept. This step is all about making sure that
you are happy with the design and are ready to deliver the final
This is the final step where we deliver the
final products. We will email logo files to you in a .zip
folder (containing the 5 basic formats - others available by
request). We will use this step to order printed products such
as business cards, letterhead, brochures, flyers as well as other
Additionally, this is the step where we would launch a website
project. We will be glad to launch it on your server as long as we are
provided with FTP login information. Also, we do offer domain
names and hosting and would be glad to set this up for you and
launch it on the new domain.
We also use this time to ensure the client is completely satisfied
and happy with the process, our company and the final products.
