Listen. Create. Deliver.
Taking into practice the three words that mean most to my business.
To LISTEN to client's needs and desires for a project or on-going campaign. Open your ears to what they are trying to communicate and convey as an end goal.
With the proper information gathered and a clear brief from the client, proceed to CREATE assets that can be fully utilized and applied to each individual project. Bring something extra to the creative process and give your client something to be proud to promote and share.
DELIVER on the promise you have laid forth, and do it in a timely manner, adhering to the agreed upon deadline. Always maintaining good communication back and forth throughout the process.
