  • Creative Briefs

    Get the best from your creatives. A Creative Brief is the foremost communication tool between businesses and creatives. This is where the client outlines their business needs, goals, and requirements. It’s the foundation of every project, big or small.

    BUSINESSES: Eliminate guessing games with a brief that outlines your needs and wants. Keep it simple and focused — pare it down to the essentials. All these will help your creative team see the best solution for your business.

    CREATIVES: Ask your clients the right questions to bring you to the right idea faster.

  • Project bid

    The project bid usually seals the deal. Having the lowest quotation (“bid”) may be one way of winning new clients. Another way is to charge a bit more but provide extra services that make your clients’ lives easier and worry-free.

  • Non-disclosure agreement

    Protect your “secret sauce”. Great idea, check. Creative brief, check. After receiving the project bids, you’re ready to hire people. Interviewing prospects means revealing some of your trade secrets. Protect your ideas by having every potential creative partner sign a Non-disclosure Agreement before you even begin your first meeting.

  • Terms of Agreement

    Defining goals and expectation are key to a smooth business relationship. The road to business success is, more often than not, a bumpy one – you never know what might cause a project to derail. Before a project starts, come to an agreement on how to handle delays, cancellations, disagreements, and non-payment. Discussing this difficult points during the ‘honeymoon’ phase keeps things clear when the going gets though. We strongly encourage drawing up Terms and Agreement even if you plan to work for free (pro bono)

  • Schedule

    Hope for the best, plan for the worst. Pad your timeline by a few extra weeks or months, if possible. Planned properly, pesky unexpected delays will only be minor annoyances rather than major disasters.
