We provide our clients with all the design and marketing solutions they need ensuring a cohesive relationship between design style and advertising.
How long will the design process take?
The timeframe of the design process is impacted by several factors;
  • Has a concept already been developed, is it useable?
    If yes then the conceptualisation period may be significantly shortened, if not this phase can take anywhere from 2+ weeks in order to create a selection of concepts for the client’s selection, time may also be influenced by the clients decision making time.
  • How many different designs, or versions of a design are required?
    Is the project a single design, or does it include several elements and full branding across them all. It is impossible to quote design time frames without a brief, however some average times for designs are set out below, these are not to be taken as as quote for a project rather a point of reference;
    -Poster 2-14 days (not including conceptualisation)
    -Logo 7-21 days (not including conceptualisation)
    -Flyer 2-7 days (not including conceptualisation)
    - Business Card 2-7 days (not including conceptualisation)
    Etc.
  • How much text is required to fit within the design?
    The amount of text may impact time frames by increasing the amount of formatting and proofreading required.
  • How many changes or alterations are requested by the client?
    Changes to proofs and/or more time spent in the drafting or conceptualisation phase, at the client’s request, while acceptable, will undoubtedly incur additional time and cost.
  • Are there requirements for continuous updates to the design(s)?
    If the project becomes ongoing after the fact, each time it is changed is generally looked at as a new job and will be billed as such. However if J&S are made aware the designs need to change regularly and incorporated it into the initial brief, provisions can be made to ensure the design’s flexibility. The process of making a design more flexible for future updates may increase the time taken to create the original design template.
  • Are there time consuming tools like rendering and modeling to be used?
    This one is simply a matter of processing, some programs take days to process final copies, if your design requires one of these tools, there is nothing to do but wait.
  • Amount of Proofing, Prep and Print organisation to be done?
    Again, the amount of designs to be undertaken are an influence on how long the PPP of designs will take. Each design will need to be double checked, prepped for printing and transferred to a printer for printing. For example, in the case of a 24 page book/magazine every page would need to be proofed by us and also by the client after which there may be several changes and would need to be proofed again. Print prep for a project this size may also take longer depending on the requirements of the Commercial Printer.
Why do I need a brand?

Your brand is comprised from a series of perceptions, graphics and imagery that represent your business, product/s or service/s. You shouldn’t view your branding as limited to logos, tag lines or sound-bites, rather your brand is the essence and promise of what your target audience will experience in the delivery of your business/product/service.

Another key factor to branding is enabling a buyer to easily identify you; Who you are, what you are offering, and the reason they should choose you. While you may have a clear idea of what you would like your brand to be, as your business develops your brand should evolve along with it. This is why brands are generally developed over time through:

  • Professional advice
  • Consistent advertising
  • Feedback and recommendations
  • Business and client relations
  • Experience
Once developed, your brand provides an encompassing reach inclusive of many the different products and/or services being offered, this is a huge advantage in generating awareness of your business and its offerings in the marketplace.

Why should I use a graphic designer?
Setting up and running a business can get a little crazy, and trying to research and create advertising materials at the same time may not be the most time/cost effective way or even produce the best results. A graphic designer is there to help you in a time when you aren’t sure about your stylistic direction, or, when you simply have no idea where to start. If you are sure about what you want, a designer is there to help create your vision and provide you with the best possible result. A good designer is looking out for you and your business by putting in the effort to ensure your designs reach their fullest potential.
Is advertising really that important?
Short answer, yes!
Advertising is essential, how will anybody know who you are, what you do and where to find you without it?
There are many different styles and avenues for advertising, and finding the right fit for your business is the first step in establishing a connection to a clientele/consumer base that is genuinely interested in your products and/or services.
How long does printing take?
The printing process may vary depending on the type of printer and printing needed, as well as the amount of printing to be done. Generally a 2-5 week lead time is recommended depending on the above variants and shipping times.
What is print prep/set-up?
The print preparation process must be carried out before the designer or client sends the design off for printing. The process includes file preparation, proof-reading, colour processing, configuring the allowance of bleed, the addition of crop marks for cutting, and file exporting to a transferable format before finally transferring it to the printer.
