Design FAQs

There is one thing we get a lot in the I Am Female studio, and that is questions! And we’re not surprised, the process of creating your brand identity and creative assets is a complex one, so it’s important questions are raised to the team so our process is understood and fully transparent. Oh, and no question is too small or too stupid! We’ve collated our top design FAQ’s asked by our clients to help you get a better understanding of how we work to make sure we’re the right design agency for you!

  1. What is your design process like?
    One word: collaborative. Our focus is you and your objectives, these act as the foundations of our process. Our process is structured yet flexible, tailored to meet the unique needs of each project. But here’s an overview of how we typically approach design projects:

    Stage 1: Creative Research & Concepts: We begin by gaining a thorough understanding of your goals, target audience, brand identity, and project requirements. This involves conducting research, reviewing existing materials, and discussing your vision in detail. Based on the insights gathered during the discovery phase, we brainstorm and develop initial design concepts. This stage may involve sketching ideas, creating mood boards, and exploring various creative directions. We present the initial concepts to you for feedback and discussion. Your input is super invaluable in guiding the direction of the design.

    Stage 2: Design Development: This is where we really work our magic! We iterate on the designs based on your feedback, refining and enhancing them until we reach a final concept that aligns with your vision. Once the concept is approved, we proceed to the design execution phase. Our team brings the concept to life, paying attention to every detail to ensure the final product meets your expectations. These are then presented to you for review. You have the opportunity to provide feedback and request any necessary revisions. We accommodate your feedback and make revisions until you are completely satisfied with the final designs.

    Stage 3: Design Implementation: Once the designs are approved, we finalise them for delivery. This may involve preparing files for print or web use, ensuring they are formatted correctly and meet any technical requirements. We then deliver the final designs to you in your desired format.

    Post-Project Support: Our commitment to your satisfaction extends beyond project completion. We offer post-project support to address any questions or concerns you may have and ensure a smooth transition to implementation. Throughout the design process, communication and collaboration are key. We keep you informed and involved every step of the way, ensuring that the final designs not only meet your expectations but also exceed them.

    Ensuring that designs meet your brand’s identity and objectives is a crucial aspect of our design process. We know you want assurance that our agency understand your brand values, target audience, and objectives. And we do this through our creative process.

    We start by gaining a deep understanding of your brand, including its values, mission, target audience, and market positioning. This involves thorough research and, if necessary, consultations with your team to grasp the essence of your brand. We believe in open communication and collaboration throughout the design process. We involve your team at key stages to gather feedback and insights, ensuring that the designs resonate with your brand’s vision and goals.

    Our design decisions are guided by your brand’s objectives. Whether it’s increasing brand awareness, driving engagement, or communicating a specific message, we align our creative choices with your overarching goals. We adopt an iterative approach to design, during our design development, which ensures we refine the designs based on your input, continuously moving towards a final product that meets your objectives. Before finalising any designs, we present them to your team for approval. This gives you the opportunity to ensure that the designs aligns before they are implemented.

    How do revisions and feedback work during the design process?
    During the design process, revisions and feedback are integral to ensuring that the final product meets your expectations and objectives. Each project has 4 rounds of amends, with more available but charged at £125 per hour. Here’s how we typically handle revisions and feedback:

    1: We start by presenting initial design concepts to you based on the project brief and our discussions. These concepts serve as a starting point for further refinement.

    2: After reviewing the initial concepts, we encourage you to provide detailed feedback. This feedback can range from overall impressions to specific changes or adjustments you’d like to see. We value your input and use it to guide the direction of the design.

    3: Using your feedback as a guide, we iterate on the initial concepts to make the necessary revisions. This may involve refining the design elements, adjusting colours or typography, or exploring alternative approaches.

    4: Once the revisions are complete, we present the updated designs to you for review. We ensure that the revisions address your feedback effectively and align with your vision for the project.

    5: Depending on the complexity of the project and the extent of the revisions needed, we may go through multiple rounds of feedback and revision, 4 are included in your project price, and you are made aware of what feedback round you are on. We remain flexible and responsive to your input throughout this process.

    6: Once you are satisfied with the revisions and the design meets your requirements, we seek final approval before proceeding to the next stage of the project.

    Throughout the revision process, we maintain clear and open communication to ensure that everyone involved is on the same page. We document all feedback and revisions to track changes and ensure consistency. By following this collaborative approach to revisions and feedback, we strive to create designs that not only meet but exceed your expectations.

    Do you provide ongoing support or maintenance after project completion?
    Yes we do! We offer support options for long-term collaborations such as retainers, consulting and brand maintenance. Our additional range of services means we can offer post-project support on other areas of your brand that need growth support. You can check out all of our services in detail here.
