The Creative Process

We want to be helpful to you in any way we can. Our creative services are broad, and we are totally flexible in our approach. Use us for everything we can offer or just part of it, whatever suits you. Quite simply we just love to create the work you need.

Experience has taught us, we need to be clear about the result to be attained, and agreed on the route and approach required to get there. Below sets out a path we can follow. This is a great place to start. This is The Creative Process.

Working With Us

There are no set rules on how you work with me or my associates. For a simple shoot, you may just be chatting with me. Something bigger and complex will involve a team. We will want to hear from you first about what you are looking to achieve. Do you have a brief that is set in stone? Fantastic. If not, we can help you craft the best brief for your needs. The basic principle of keeping things simple, and stripped back with no fluff or padding helps us be true to how we work, and also keeps your budget to a minimum and takes the weight of organisation off your shoulders.

I know we should never take it for granted that everything is clear and obvious about how things work. With this in mind here is a quick run down of the kind of conversations we should be having and in what order.

Looking forward to when we speak
