The Need Seed Q&A
What makes a great website?
A great website symbolises less is more. Websites should be meticulously well presented and informative giving only information that is absolutely necessary (much like sketch annotation).
A great website should always be drafted by hand or on Photoshop before hand; the user interface must be planned.
What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?
What is the Design Brief?
The first step is always to define exactly, the parameters in which we will work involving time and budget. The design brief is the crucial framework the creativity is caged in. A poor brief allows the project to drift without convergence.
Describe your creative process.
Absolutely clear Design Brief highlighting the framework for the project including client requirements and time scales. Process starts with both informed and thorough research including favourable or competing existing products.
Sketch ideation and digital structuring follows with regular discussions scheduled with the client. If it is a website it is regularly run through various web browsers to make sure time is not wasted on incompatible components.
What information do you need from a client before you can start work?
A Design Brief - Timescales - Agreement on budget/price/hourly rate - A Deadline
What do you love most about your job?
It is like solving a crime that hasn't happened yet. We love creating unique outcomes with the resources available. The Need Seed is a graphic consultancy but will eventually develop its own innovations .
What inspired you to start your own business?
An ability to self impose a structure of work and work efficiently. The company was founded to develop need driven innovations grown from a Seed of thought. The true test of a Designer is the quality of their designs and their influence on the world. We are very passionate about our ideas.
Why should our clients choose you?
Total reliability; the track record speaks for itself.
Very happy current and previous clients.
A revolutionary framework for working.
A wealth of design consultancy experience.
