The Visual Matter process for project development and process management is based on discoveries, innovation, content management and process evaluation while working with and creating solutions for Fortune 1000 clients since 1997.
In order to make the very best use of the client's budget and timeline Visual Matter employs a Design Forward ™ philosophy and approach to the creative process; meaning Visual Matter will build segments of the project based on content, information, etc., that are deemed final, non-changing (at least for the immediate need of this project) and have approval from all stake holders at all levels.
We build our cost estimates with the premise of building and touching content once, closing that door, so to speak, and then moving to the next task. Each development stage is built upon the shoulders of the previous stage of development. Thus we are always building “forward” and with the least possible steps required to build a project, which means fewer hours of development, thus a reduced budget.
To facilitate the process of Design Forward™ we spend a little more time with our clients at the forefront of a project to clearly define our production requirements, their ability to gather and make available to us “final” content and then our timeline of production. Or ultimate goal is to make this project as easy as possible on you and your finance department, by seeking your involvement and assistance.
Changes and corrections
As you can imagine, the Design Forward™ philosophy is a true man-hour saver and a real advantage for our clients. Unfortunately, with this philosophy, there is no budget or padding of the budget for changes. Corrections, mistakes made by our development team, sure, those we are happy to fix at no charge to you and with our sincere apologies. But changes to content, flow charting, navigation, colors, photographs, etc., are not part of the original budget. So when there is a change requested, that is outside of the scope of the original estimated cost, Visual Matter will supply a Change of Scope document. This document will define the requested change, the cost to implement and the effect, if any, to the project's timeline. Said document will need to be signed, approved and received from our client before any changes can be implemented.
We believe a team-focused approach creates the best product with minimal cost. With that thought Visual Matter will work closely with a designated point person from the client's team.
Visual Matter, when creating a project estimate, counts on the client to assist in the development process. We believe a teamwork approach creates the best product while reducing estimated cost. To minimize the estimated man- hours for the development of the proposed project Visual Matter will be working and relying on the content experts of the client for guidance and direction.
