Review of The Need Seed by Taylor Hindley

I did not use The Need Seed, however they were very easy to talk to and willing to meet face-to-face to discuss the requirements of my project. Not something you see everyday in the age of technology that we live in.

If there is anything that me or my company needs done in the future, I will be sure to come back to The Need Seed!

I was introduce to the Need Seed through a friend of mine in my local pub and it was obviously meant to be.

They have totally re-branded my business from logo to website and are now advertising us using their Ecommerse experience.

I am a specialist in automotive pattern design and fibreglass composites. This was a very sensible and successful way of gaining an online presence and moving with the times.

I would recommend the Need Seed to anyone and suggest getting in with them early. They have big plans in the future.

I was lucky to be their first Norfolk client; their produced me a stunning website with 3D visuals of flooring systems and turned it around in a month.

I would recommend The Need Seed because of the sheer amount of knowledge and experience they bring to the table.

They are unique thinkers, excellent Designers and charge fairly by the hour.

The Need Seed Q&A

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.
