Your Creative Partner
At Garrett Creative, we don’t just deliver great design work, we build dynamic creative partnerships with our clients. From our transparent pricing models to our collaborative delivery process, we are with you every step of the way. Here’s what to expect when you work with us…
Working with what you already know about your customers, we build profiles from a broad range of visual, cultural and market references to fully understand what users need from our designs.
We’ll send over a research deck and mood boards that give you a broad idea of the strategy we recommend, including visual style, colour, illustration and typography. And your thoughts and feedback will shape how we approach the next stage.
Here we apply the design strategy to your business and projects. We’ll begin creating style guides and sketching out work – your feedback, ideas and copy will help us iterate as we go.
At the end you’ll get two alternative concepts, including mockups, that will help you make a call on our direction for the final stretch.
At this point we shift gears. We get creating, you get another chance to fine tune our ideas, and your visuals are brought to life. They’ll arrive in your hands primed and ready to fire your brand, music or message out to the world.
