The pivotal steps to take your project from good ideas to awwww yeahhh!
Each decision is made with purpose and intention. I live for minimal design- I think your brand should speak to who you are and what you do in a clean and efficient way. This is my overall process.

Set up outline in Asana//
This isn't necessarily a crucial detail for you to know, but I like to show you my behind the scenes process here and there. I'll set up a overview of our project in Asana. I literally write out everything that needs to be done with corresponding deadlines to keep us on track. Here's what this looks like:
