Why is good design so important?

Design is concerned with the presentation of your business’ information. It’s everything from the colour scheme to the layout of your copy to the types of bullets you use in lists.

Good design has been proven to influence the way your customers view your organisation. Having a professional, logical and clear design enhances your organisation’s credibility and creates an easier, more enjoyable customer experience.

This is critical in ensuring conversion in a highly competitive online environment, considering that the average conversion rate for an E-Commerce website is 1.40%.

It helps customers find what they’re looking for and it distributes information in a way that ensures readers aren’t overwhelmed and inclined to disengage. It also works in close association with your branding to provide an image for your business.

What is good design?

Good design is created with your business objectives and the customer’s needs in mind. It ensures that information is easy to access and that content is formatted in a logical and clear manner. It delivers consistent messages through imagery and it’s professional and reflective of the values of your business.

It also takes into account technical requirements such as minimising page loading times on websites to make sure that you don’t lose potential customers.

Design process

Discover

1)  Define your needs

We meet with key players in your business to ascertain what you need and why you need it. We take this information away and assess the requirements of the project.

2) Quote

We provide you with a detailed, itemised summary of charges and await your approval before commencing work.

3) Discovery session

This is where we start to get serious. We learn about your business objectives, who your customers are, your creative requirements (including examples of some work that you like) and technical requirements. This is where we really start to understand the inner workings of your business and how to project those.

4) No surprises policy.

We get back to you with a proposal summarising our understanding of the brief and demonstrating to you that we understand your requirements. At this stage we also advise of print and digital turnaround and the finer logistical details.

Build

5) Deliver an initial design with an experienced designer

We have a range of print and digital designers and work with the best ones for your project to achieve the best results every time. Our designer will present the initial design to you so that you can give them any direct feedback or ask any technical questions that may arise.

6) Project management

You’ll have a project manager that’s always on call throughout the feedback process who understands your needs and the design speak. Having one point of contact is time efficient and guarantees consistent communication every time.
