The Little Acre Design Process

At The Little Acre, this small creative studio delivers big results with agency-quality outcomes. The main mission is to provide comprehensive design solutions that not only bring your ideas to life but also ensure you are confident and empowered to use and showcase them.

First off, celebratory high-five for you reaching out and wanting to join forces on your next project with The Little Acre.

Working with The Little Acre is a collaborative journey, and here’s how the process works:

Step 1: Discovery & Research

The first step is crucial to our success.
We gather several inputs and learn more through our project activities:

  • Client Briefing: We review your onboarding questionnaire (for branding & website clients) and sit down over a call or coffee to understand your vision, goals, and what you aim to achieve.

  • Market Research: We analyse your competitors to understand what they’re doing (or not doing) and identify opportunities for differentiation.

Step 2: Strategy & Planning

We create a plan! With the information gathered from Step 1, we tick all the boxes and make further assessments and adjustments.

Review Existing Strategies: We assess your business, brand, and marketing strategies. If they are up-to-date, we use them to inform our project. If they need adjustments, we can help refine them.

Define Project Scope: We clearly define the project boundaries to prevent scope creep, ensuring we stay within time and budget constraints.

Step 3: Alignment

We send you the project outline and invoice.

Once we receive your 50% deposit, we allocate a space for you in our workflow, usually within 2-6 weeks.

Step 4: Project Development

With a solid foundation from our research and planning, we move into the creative phase:

  • Brainstorming Sessions: We generate a wide range of ideas through internal and collaborative brainstorming sessions.

  • Mood Boards and Sketches: We create mood boards and sketches to explore different visual directions.

  • Concept Creation: We develop concepts that align with your company’s goals and vision using our tools and expertise.

Step 5: Design & Refinement

Once we have developed our concepts, we present them to you for feedback. Based on your input, we iterate on the designs until we achieve the final result that meets your expectations.

Most projects we find that they only require 3 rounds of reiterations, however, if your project requires a little more TLC then we're sure to go the extra mile until you're happy.

Step 6: Launch & Celebrate

  • Brand Work: We present you with a comprehensive brand guidelines booklet that includes everything you need to maintain your brand's integrity, along with your brand files in PDF, PNG, and JPEG formats (excluding working design files).

  • Website Work: We walk you through the final product, launch the website, and provide a 'how to' video tutorial on basic website updates you can manage moving forward.

  • Project Completion: The remaining 50% balance will be due now that the project is complete.

Step Seven: Keep in Touch

Now that your project is complete, you can enjoy the excitement of implementing your new brand, website, and project, and bringing in new customers! However, our journey doesn’t end here:

  • Long-Term Partnership: We aim to build long-term relationships with our clients. Whether you need ongoing design updates, new marketing materials, or strategic advice, we are always here to help.

  • Additional Support: If you encounter any issues or need further assistance with your brand or website, just reach out. We’re only a call or email away.

  • Continuous Improvement: As your business grows and evolves, so should your brand and website. We can help you adapt and refine your visual identity and digital presence to stay ahead of the competition.

  • Exclusive Offers: Stay connected with us for exclusive offers on future projects and priority support.
