Everything starts with the research for new ideas and the evaluation of current trends. What do current projects need, what interests and moves our customers? Our answers on these (an more) questions are distilled into a theme concept. The collection of ideas specifies which tasks and use cases the theme should fulfil best, where the design focus will lie and if there will be special technical requirements.
You probably won't notice all of the decisions make in this step, but you will feel them in the end.
Good Design Is Unobtrusive.
We draw raw sketches to form the basic structure of the pages. The main purpose of this step is to decide where content will go, how much text will work and where images can ideally be placed.
The drafts make the concept touchable and often lead to new valuable ideas. Additionally we determine how the content could seamlessly flow down into the mobile version to make the design responsive. The particular challenge is to base all these decisions on your needs, without the possibility to evaluate the situation individually.
This process ensures that every design works for you, your users and clients. Rather than to blindly follow trends we carefully consider current style directions and bring them together with tried and tested, centuries-old typographic standards.
