Research: After discussing your brand and your projects needs, I research the market to see what is currently selling that is similar to your idea as well as unique shapes, details, and features that I think would work for your project. I will send you an Inspiration Packet for you to review and for us to discuss so that I can get a better grasp of your idea.
Initial Design: I provide initial concept designs (for each item you want designed) to choose from and will submit these to you for feedback.
Final Design: Once you’ve chosen a design(s) I will proceed to creating a final design that is fully rendered with color and materials and includes multiple views and details about the product’s function.
Tech Pack: Once the final design has been approved I will proceed to creating the Tech Pack. The tech pack includes specifications, measurements, detailed information about the pattern and the materials, and all other essential information necessary for the manufacturer to develop a prototype/sample of the design.
Follow-Up Communication: I will handle all correspondence with the factory regarding the development of the design to ensure that it is developed in the most cost-effective and timely manner.
Corrections to the Prototype: I will review the prototype with you and we will discuss the necessary changes that need to be made. I will then correct the prototype and revise/update the Tech Pack and submit both forms to the manufacturer to create a new prototype of the updated design.
Final Sample Specs: I will create the final sample specification forms for each design that will include correct materials and colors for the final samples.
