Whether it is a simple illustration, a complex biological animation, or a novel presentation format, we always strive to innovate and design visual products that are custom fit to foster better engagement between our clients and their audience.
Research and Ideation
We always start by listening to your needs and communication goals. We're here to help you realize your vision, but we're also not afraid to guide you and to provide alternative solutions and products when we believe it is in your best interest.
What to expect?
This stage usually takes about 10% of project's total duration, depending on your project goals. We are also happy to adjust the scope of your project to work within your budget.
Drafting, Sketching, Scripting
Before we jump into production, we always dedicate time to ideation and concept-building. For example, if this is an animation, then we are talking script writing and storyboarding. This stage is dynamic and fast paced as we work towards a blueprint for your product.
What to expect?
This stage usually takes up 30–40% of the project's total duration. We never skip this step. In our experience, the more robust and aligned we can be in creating a blueprint—whether a site map, storyboard, and illustration draft—the greater chance of delivering a successful and lasting product.
Animating, Rendering, Style Dev
Once the blueprint is finalized, production begins. We'll be checking in with style development updates to keep you abreast of production milestones. Otherwise, this is when our team digs in with animating and rendering as we race towards realizing your product.
What to expect?
This stage takes up anywhere from 50–60% of the project's total duration. We start this stage by developing and finalizing a style and look for your product, if it hasn't yet been decided. To avoid delays, any narrative and/or subject matter decisions are resolved during preproduction.
