Clients I have worked with.
My client list is ever growing, and includes the following businesses:
So why should you choose Designed By Faust?
- You’ll be getting great value for money.
Agencies have huge overheads – the swanky office to rent, a multitude of directors, designers, admin staff and account managers to pay – independents are in many cases sole enterprises working from their own premises, and will not charge you for any of the above, saving you a pile of money without compromising creativity or quality on design.
- You’ll be dealing directly with one designer – me.
You won’t find yourself passed from account handler to senior designer to overworked junior designer who’ll put you at the bottom of the pile – I will always be your sole point of contact, the main designer managing your brief, and be in a position to offer you a better personal client / designer experience.
- You won’t be dictated to.
The client-designer relationship is like a dance – each partner wishes to move forward without stepping on each other’s toes. I also understand clients sometimes are not sure what they want. Whilst drawing upon the same expertise as an agency, I will guide you towards the design process, collaborate and listen to your needs, and offer you input into the concept and aim of the design brief. This is because I can input more passion at a more competitive cost – and wish to communicate your vision back to you.
…and the not so obvious.
- You know I’ll be hard at work on your project when the agency has gone home.
Unlike design agencies, I am able to work during the evenings and weekends, and in a far better position to meet your deadline – whether it’s an urgent change to a website or a delivery of artwork for that Monday morning meeting.
- As an independent I am dedicated.
Think about it – unlike the nine-to-five office worker, an independent designer is solely reliant upon his or her skills for their livelihood, and therefore passionate about making your project a success. Independent designers are highly-driven individuals who eat, sleep and breathe creative design solutions.
You’re in safe hands.
There is an art to creating successful design – and there is also a practical side, too. This is where you come into the process. Every piece of work created starts with a design brief and it’s all about you, the client. Your information is crucial to bringing about the steps from A to B – from concept to finished product. Once this information is in place, you can rest assured your project will be in safe hands. The design brief below will be the template for creating a successful design, and if there is further information you need to supply this will only help in creating a smoother process. How it works goes something like this:
What does your organisation do, and what is the history of your business.
What are the goals of the new design project, what do you want it to achieve.
Who are your competitors, and how do you differ from them.
- Target audience.
Who are your existing customers, who do you want to be your new customers, and what is their demograph.
Where how many concepts, mockups, revisions and final artwork mediums are worked out.
- Suppliable information.
In the case of printed material, websites etc, who will supply the copy (text), and the pictures. Will a third party be used (eg. copywriter, photographer, illustrator). Will the purchase of stock images be needed.
- Don’t likes.
Where you can give examples of features you definitely don’t like, and close off avenues where you don’t want the design process to travel.
- Budget and timescale.
What price range are you able to operate in, and when do you need the job completed.
Who needs to sign off on the job, who needs to give the “okay”.
