An agile, collaborative approach
To help our projects stay focussed, we divide them into several week-long ‘sprints,’ each devoted to a specific design challenge. Sprints are intensive periods of work that are dedicated to completing a set of requirements, often grouped under a common theme.
We’re flexible and when we can we work alongside you, either at your place or ours, so that you can ask questions and make suggestions throughout the process. We don’t hide our work away until we’re ready for a ‘big reveal.’ For the times we’re apart, we set up a shared Dropbox folder or version control repository so that you can watch as our work progresses.
Every day we meet either in person or over Skype to review the previous days’ work and discuss the work that’s planned for that day. We’ll hold this catchup everyday at the same time, no matter who’s present, and we limit it to just fifteen minutes. When we’re not together in person, a dedicated Skype or Slack channel is always open.
We schedule projects over several week-long ‘sprints’ and we charge a flat rate fee of £5000.00 plus VAT per week that covers everyone who’s working on the project. We ask for one week’s fee in advance on signing and then one week paid before each sprint begins.
