At Digimax, we pride ourselves on creating designs our clients will love and will contribute to their practices. We’ve put together some tips to make the most of our creative expertise.
When you place an order with Digimax we will run you through a list of requirements our designers need to create your vision.
We work best and achieve fastest results when we have all or as much information as possible at the start of a project.
Whilst we understand it is sometimes difficult to provide everything from the onset, a higher level of detail will help kick start the essential design process more effectively and efficiently.
Where we are carrying out a larger project, your allocated designer will advise you of what information is needed and when.
A well-prepared brief is an essential part of the creative design process. We recommend you set out exactly what you envision so we can meet your expectations. Whilst it is not necessary to create an expertly written brief, we do stress the importance of making it as accurate as possible. Be clear with us so we can create what you want to see.
As designers, one of the biggest challenges we face is a constantly changing design brief. These cause delays and may lead to extra charges. We want to create projects that surpass your vision, so please take that little bit of extra time when putting together your brief.
One factor that often causes delays is changes to the amount of content you supply our designers. If content/text does need to be changed, it is important to try and supply us with the same number of words, as increasing the length of content can cause huge changes to the design.
For example, if we are creating a booklet and the amount of content is changed we may have to make critical design variations. Changes to sizes, additional pages and/or excessive changes to the design layout will incur extra charges as this alters the original design brief.
As a trusted design agency with a large client-base, we have numerous projects being created at any one time and run a very tight schedule in order to deliver to deadline.
When necessary, we are happy to accommodate urgent projects which have a 24 to 48 hour design turnaround. Whilst we will deliver these projects with the same level of professionalism and finish as our regular work, these types of projects require schedule adjustments and overtime. For these reasons, please be aware that projects requiring a 24 to 48 hour turnaround will attract a 40% surcharge. (Subject to acceptance)
We try and provide you with the most accurate design quote possible, but sometimes we may need to work additional hours than originally set out. There is an additional hourly charge for this extra time.
Due to the speed with which we work, when a change is made to the design brief we will often go ahead and complete the work without contacting the client again. This added time (due to the changes in brief) will incur extra charges.
Please note that our initial quotes do not include the additional charges mentioned above as we hope to achieve what you are looking for within the quotation provided.
As an experienced and creative design team, we pride ourselves on being able to deliver projects quickly and to brief. For this reason, we try as hard as possible to stick to the time allotted for a project. Whilst we try to be as flexible as possible in our approach, often ongoing changes or client requests will slow the process down and incur additional charges.
When we complete a print project, we will perform a quality check to ensure we have completed all the necessary tasks. We will then send the client the final project to proofread and check for absolute final approval / sign off. It is the client’s responsibility to ensure that all the details are correct and spell check before approving for printing.
Digimax will not accept responsibility for any errors detected after approval for print.
For print-related materials, clients should be aware of the following:
