Things to consider when working in industry and what clients have to take into consideration when working with you, this will be explained during the next few weeks we have this lecture.
Triangle: top: time, bottom: cost and quality.
Necessary to look at when working in a company, and even working, as a freelance designer, fundamental of any business and anyone involved in a business.
3 distinct elements:
Design concept(s) – depends on the type of project.
This covers all aspects related to the completion and production of the design.
Technical completion – production issues – print, 3D aspects, moving image, etc.
This covers all aspects related to the design production once it is out in the public domain.
When undertaking planning ALWAYS work backwards:
Understand when the deadline is, the delivery point, out in the public domain
Things needed to be considered:
What do you want?
-Examples of inspiration
-Do you want to incorporate typography/ imagery, if so, specific font
-When do they want the final product?
-When do they start seeing ideas, drafts of processes
-Do you want printing done? Paper/size?
-After care? Follow up?
What’s your company?
-What service do you offer?
Digital Format – Time?
Client Meetings – need to sign off ideas probably twice, ideas then final concept
Time of year:
1 man hour = what one man can do in an hour (reasonably)
1 man day = 8 man hours
1 man week = 5 man days = 40 man hours
1 man month = 4 man weeks = 20 man days = 160 man hours
