What does "project-based" mean?
We define projects as any discrete endeavor with specific objectives, time horizons, and allocation of resources. The key word here is discrete—projects have end goals, a start, and a finish. Post-completion work can be rolled into a maintenance cycle or even subsequent projects.
Common characteristics of project-based engagements:
- Clear scope, objectives, and deliverables
- Approval process hierarchy on the client’s side
- Weekly status and budget reporting
- Defined project lead and project team on both sides
- Amenable to setting clear start and end dates
- Defined budget, scope, and requirements
- Production utilizes Gantt charts for project management
Below are some of our most common project-based engagements:
As a project, brand development is more than just creating a logo, often including an exploration of a company’s core identity that is then translated into the language and design elements that will bring it to life. This type of project usually results in defined brand guidelines and a foundation for the company's future public perception.
Web Design (Sometimes)
While we typically run web design endeavors as continuous improvement engagements, we know there are situations in which a discrete project structure is required. When this is the case, we use a three-phase approach of strategy, design, and development, each with its own processes that have been optimized by our team for the strongest results.
One of the many benefits of a project-based model is that it’s adaptable to virtually any goal a client would like to pursue. Whether it’s package design, environmental graphic design, business plan development, IT migrations, or something entirely different, we know how to foster a concept into something unique.
