In-formed – We never assume we know it all so with every new client we make sure we are in tune with their industry, by researching their market, knowing about any new developments, projects, we look at news, media and politics everything that could have an effect on their business. If it’s happening in their world then we need to know about it.
Relevant – Designers at heart, we never forget that our design needs to be as relevant as it is beautiful for it to be truly effective.
Memorable – Engagement is the key to truly memorable design, capture your audiences imagination, get them to interact with it, and if your brand is as good as your promise they will become loyal customers.
We like to get to know who you are, what you do and what is important to you. What are your goals, who are your competitors, who are your people, what makes you special.
Or Brainstorming, D2 style is a no holds barred exploration into the unknown and back. We generally work together as a team and cover a wall with ideas, scoping the length and breadth of a project. We may also assign further research to specialist team members where further intelligence is required. A session should result in an inspired team who can then go away for a day or two and explore some of the ideas generated as well as some of their own.
This is where the whole team meets up again to process and refine ideas that have been generated. After exploring a wide range of ideas we aim to distil the project usually into two or three routes. We are then able to focus on the chosen routes and working up to a stage where we can present to the client. We usually like to have one idea that is close to the brief, one that pushes the concept of what was expected and a longshot. Ideas are then presented to the client for feedback.
Every project strategy is driven by a rigid set of business objectives, your objectives, we are designers at heart but our belief remains that good design has to be effective and not just pretty pictures.
With over a combined 100 years of experience we are confident enough to be able to offer flexibility in our approach. You will always work with senior teams who are highly experienced and leaders in their fields. Our approach therefore is more about our philosophy than a set of rules.
