Our Process

Our workflow for every job hits the mark, on time and on budget


We start with a conversation.

We chat, going from the big picture to the little details to learn what you know and love. We listen, taking notes and pinning to cork boards. We collaborate, asking about goals, metrics, and sustainable solutions. Each idea we pitch is tailored to you.

We deliver Phase 1.

Film: Pre-Production
Web and Design: Creative Direction

We provide lo-fi sketches and high-concept ideas about what you and your brand can do. We focus a strategy that works for all your creative, user, and business needs and desires.


We start Phase 2...

Film: Production
Web and Design: Front-end Design

We agree on the scope of the work and come up with a structure for the work. We hit the ground running with how things look and feel.

...and deliver Phase 2.

Film: Post-Production
Web and Design: Back-end Development

We continue with the skeleton for the project, laying out what goes where and sharing a proof of concept that shows what we got in the context of its final medium and devices.


We deliver Phase 3.

Film: Promotion and Distribution
Web and Design: User Experience and Engagement

We finalize the surface of the work, embracing the little details and going the extra mile with delivering in optimized, findable ways to your audience.
