How my
process works

This process helps me build meaningful relationships with my clients and adds a focus on delivering a personal service.

LET'S START
1

Getting to Know You

This is the most integral part of my process, getting to know you and your business in as much detail as possible so I can fully share and understand your vision. We’ll then formulate a brief, budget and timescale.
2

Research & Discovery

I’ll then begin looking at your clients, building customer profiles, researching competitors and other aspirational brands. This stage involves mood-boards & sketches that help us define visually which direction to take.
3

Concepts & Ideas

At this stage we’re on to wireframes, sketches and visuals. Your project will start to come to life on the screen, and we’ll be able to discuss and refine ideas in an open collaborative way to get the best solution to your brief.
4

Detail & Delivery

During this stage I’ll work on the finer development, details and finishing touches of your design. Once the designs finished I’ll be there to help you through every stage of launch.

But wait…

who’s Jake Johnson?

I’m a passionate and detail-driven designer with over 5 years industry experience including time at a leading Manchester agency.

My grounding is in logos, brands and identity systems and I still get excited about setting type and composing grid systems, however –  Digital design and making things look beautiful on screen is also a huge part of what I love about what I do.
