How does color consultation work?
Color consultation can be provided via the Internet or on site. In some cases we do both.
Typically, our clients usually provide us with illustrations and documentation as needed for the project. Pantone colors, RGB codes, or other color systems that apply to your project can be used for the work.
Once we have all the necessary information, we develop some preliminary solutions. During this process, we stay in touch with you. Your feedback keeps the project moving forward. After the creative process and dialogue, we submit our specifications.
How much time is needed for a color project??
This depends on the scope of the project. For example: How many colors or color combinations are required for the project? Do you need color specifications and documentation? Do you need statistics or research about the colors specified for your project? Do you need illustrations of the color specifications for your design? Do you need on-site services?
The length of the project can range from one week to one month or longer. It depends on the scope of the project, and the color design development process. In some cases, Phase I is provided remotely via the Internet, web conferencing, and other communication. Phase II may be on site, working with your team. For example, we work with your designers, chemical or industrial engineers, or other professionals in your organization.
About the minimum time needed:
We take the responsibility of your project seriously and do a professional job. Simplifying color doesn't lead to well-informed solutions. Therefore, there are no easy answers that apply to all color challenges.
What do you give me at the end of the project? (What are the deliverables?)
Typically we provide specifications for the colors and supporting documentation for the rationale underlying the color specifications. If the project requires statistics, we provide this data as well as an Excel spreadsheet. Illustrations, slide shows and other documentation can be provided if required by a client.
How much does it cost?
Our fees are similar to other design professionals and our prices are competitive. We usually submit a proposal with a lump sum fee. In other situations an hourly fee works best.
How do I find out if this would work for me?
After we hear from you, we'll review the information you've provided and any supporting materials. Next, we submit a proposal for services. This is an important step because it clarifies the scope of the project. Once this is approved, we begin the work.
