What is graphic design?

What does Percept believe graphic design is?

Graphic design can be described as visual communication design, through the combined use of illustrations, photography, typography (letters and text), icons, imagery, and colours. This visual communication puts across ideas, messages, and feelings that essentially say something to the audience. Percept is a graphic design studio that plays the role of coming up with the concept and creative execution for this visual communication.

In a world where visual communication has become normal, a graphic design studio, such as Percept, plays a great role in defining, distilling and delivering the desired messaging in the most appropriate way. An effective graphic design studio has become far more than a graphic design company that produces good-looking brochures and flyers. A leading graphic design studio is now a team of visual communication experts, where their branding and communication design is much more well-considered.

Getting the messaging right and conveying it in a way that will resonate with the audience is of utmost importance. This is then executed by the graphic design studio, either broadly or focused on any platform where a brand communicates with its target market, including websites, social media, and print media.

Percept is considered to be a leading design agency in Sydney. Our graphic design studio features a highly experienced team that is able to interpret and translate a brand’s vision into visual communication that will resonate with the desired audience.

How do good design agencies help companies?

Why invest in top design agencies such as Percept?

Percept ranks among the top design agencies in Sydney because of our focus on effective graphic design work. Our team realises that you know your business and the industry you operate in better than anyone else, but branding and communication design are probably not your forte. Design agencies possess this expertise, and good design agencies, such as Percept, specialise in helping you through the process with the goal of achieving the best outcome for your business.

Percept and similar design agencies will follow a design process that extracts key information from you, through a series of questions. We get to know you and tap into your knowledge, in order to find out how we can best help your company do better business. Design agencies like Percept, with this approach, achieve better outcomes than design agencies that deliver only what a client has requested. 

Percept believes design agencies who truly want the best for their clients are thorough in their methods, in much the same way as a doctor would not prescribe medicine or perform an operation solely based on a patient’s self-diagnosis. Percept is one of the design agencies in Sydney who relish this role, working closely with the stakeholders of a company to discover what their true objectives are. We first think critically, then creatively before providing graphic design solutions. This distinguishes top design agencies from regular design agencies because for branding and marketing communications to be effective, it must be solving a given problem.

The Percept – Brand Design team works with your company to reach your business goals. Our belief is that design agencies should be an extension of your company. An important advisor for improving your branding and marketing communications within your market in order to achieve business growth.

Whether a client was searching ‘graphic design Sydney’ for branding, packaging, communication or digital design, all projects are run in the same way. So if you need graphic design Sydney, Percept, will work through set stages and questions to guide the process and ensure everyone’s expectations are clear. For instance;

What do we need from you, the client?

At the beginning of the project, Percept, graphic design Sydney, will walk you through our briefing process. This set of questions helps us understand the problem that requires a solution and what your objectives and ideal outcomes are. Basically, it’s where you tell us what you think needs to be done, but more importantly the results you want to see once everything is completed. In the initial discussion, you tell us what you aim to achieve. Is it increased sales? A total rebrand? A website redesign? A campaign for the launch of a new product? From this point, we will elaborate and ultimately deduce the project’s brief. Percept, a graphic design company in Sydney, can then scope exactly what is involved in the project and provide you with a detailed project proposal outlining all deliverables and the cost involved. If you are happy to proceed, Percept, graphic design Sydney, will then begin work according to what is outlined in the project proposal regarding what is to be done, the required input by each party involved as well as a break-down of timings and budget.

Who is involved?

When you work with a graphic design company such as Percept, there are many people involved in the process. This includes individuals within our design studio as well as anyone with input from your organisation. From the start, it is important to clarify who are the key decision-makers at your end. It is ideal that all these stakeholders are involved at the beginning and at all key stages of the project to ensure everyone is fully informed of what is being done and why, and this will help approval stages run smoothly. The answer to this question enables a more efficient flow of information between the Percept, graphic design Sydney, team and you, the client. We’ll need you to select a project leader with the appropriate decision-making authority. Percept will provide the project head in our graphic design company in the form of your dedicated Account Director. They will be the main contact person for the project. Establishing this channel of communication is essential for clarity when it comes to feedback, project scope changes, and any queries regarding timelines and the budget.

How many concepts does a design agency such as Percept present?

In most cases, our graphic design company, Percept, will develop multiple options for you, the client, to consider. This is determined by what has been agreed upon in the project proposal. A typical project from Percept, graphic design Sydney, may have 2 or 3 design concepts that are presented at an early stage for approval of the general direction. These options will not be finalised and refinements will be made as the project progresses, once a concept has been selected. These design refinements will be made with the client’s input and presented again at the next stage for approval before roll-out and final artwork development.

How long does the Percept design agency take on a project?

The timeline for any graphic design agency to complete a project obviously depends on its scope. Designing a website, for example, takes far longer than designing a single page brochure.
