The process that occurs between final design creation and final printing, marrying your creative vision with the technical needs of the printer to ensure your product looks just the way you envisioned.
If it gets printed, it requires production design! Examples of common projects are:
They can. However, graphic designers’ skills are best leveraged on creative projects. Time spent on the technical production design process means other creative projects get pushed out.
As long as your subscription is active you can add as many design requests to your queue as you like. Each project will be delivered one-by-one - we cannot move on to the next project until the current one is completed or put on hold.
It depends on the complexity of the design project but most projects are delivered within 3-4 working days. More complex projects or projects with multiple layers of deliverables may be broken into multiple projects.
We have a team of highly-vetted production designers. Every design deliverable is reviewed and approved by our co-founder (and seasoned production design expert) before you receive your final designs.
We are two long-time colleagues that have spent years leading product development, packaging and printing in some of the most highly-regulated and fastest-growing CPG industries.
In order to join our team, a production designer must pass a rigorous test that includes a challenging, real-life production design scenarios.
Our designers are fluent in the Adobe Creative Suite - Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop, etc. Most jobs will be completed within Adobe Illustrator, however some designs will require managing assets in a variety of filetypes.
Some printers have in-house production designers. Many do not. Some printers even leverage our team to do production design for them on behalf of their clients. We typically find that the printers that do have in-house production designers focus on ease of printing rather than customizing your design to be the best it can be.
