Our workflow

Each project is unique and presents it’s own challenges and opportunities. As a result, we always follow a specific set of steps. These steps help us keep everything organized. They also create moments to talk about the project with our clients. This section is phrased towards pixel art commissions but the process is similar in all areas.

At the start of a project we’ll ask questions to learn about what our clients are envisioning. We like to hammer down the scope of the project. Often, we’ll provide early mock-ups to better understand what exactly the client is looking for. Once the project’s scope is fully understood, we’ll provide a detailed estimate for the work. We will always use the price from our estimate unless the client has changed the scope of the project and has agreed to the extra work.

After the estimate is agreed upon, the design process begins. We’ll share early sketches of our designs with the client to get as much feedback as we can. The iteration process during the design phase is an especially important part of bringing the client’s vision to life. In animation projects we’ll often spend extra time on design iteration to ensure the client is happy before beginning any animating.

When our client is pleased with the design we’ll begin development and/or animation of the final product. During development the iteration process will continue.  In addition, we provide updates as often as possible and encourage feedback. After the work is complete and the client is happy with the result, we’ll send our final invoice and deliver the project.
