Good design is as much about idea generation as it is about beautiful aesthetic. We don't just turn on a computer and start designing. In fact, about half the time we spend on a creative brief is doing our homework before anyone even touches a computer or uses software. Every brief, our process is the same. Immersive, collaborative and inclusive. We set out to achieve a strategic objective, listen to your requirements and create a visual solution. See our typical workflow process in action below.
Our Creative Process.
Let's begin by opening communication. In most instances, it starts with an information gather through the 'Build a Brief' function on our website. It's here we listen to your requirements, questions get answered on both sides so that we can get a good understanding of your project and objectives then send you a design proposal with detailed costing.

Upon 'The Client' final approval and balance of payment, finished artwork (this does not include any design concepts presented) will be provided in the requested file formats by email or provided link to a shared file storage.

'Yeehaa Creative' retains the rights on design content, digital assets and licenses contained within the design and will remain the property of the 'Yeehaa Creative'. Under no circumstance is the client permitted rights of usage for any design concept presented at any point throughout the design process other than the agreed finished artwork that has been given approval. Additional costs may apply for search, selection and licensing of stock imagery, vectors, fonts or other digital assets if contained.

Publication and/or release of work performed on behalf of the client by 'Yeehaa Creative' may not take place before cleared funds have been received. Any booking fees, delivery fees, design commencement fees, or progress payments are non-refundable once work has commenced if the client terminates the contract, after work has commenced.

All printing accounts must be settled in full prior to the release of the files to the printer. Accounts which are not paid COD will incur a late administration fee of $USD20 + tax. Accounts which remain outstanding for 14 days after the date of invoice will incur an additional late payment fee equivalent to 5% of the project costs for each week payment is outstanding.

The client may be subject to additional costs based on the additional time (hours) spent on the project (to date) above and beyond the initial deposit amount. This also includes what is deemed ''Change of Creative Direction'' whereby after two rounds of revisions on draft design concepts any ''Change of Creative Direction'' that has not been addressed up to that point of the design process, the client may be subject to additional costs calculated on an hourly basis. 'Yeehaa Creative' reserve the right to terminate any project with no penalty in the event of 'Change of Mind' or ''Change of Creative Direction'' without refund of deposit.

DESIGN SAMPLES
'The Client' agrees that 'Yeehaa Creative' may showcase any/all work created during a project as part of their portfolio in any form. 'Yeehaa Creative' acknowledges the confidential nature of projects and agrees to only display work once product/site has been publicly launched/commences.

FORCE MAJEURE

EXCESS WORK
This is defined as any work involving additions to the list of items defined in the Project Proposal or Quote or changes to all pieces of finished artwork after sign off by an authorised representative of 'The Client'. From time to time 'The Client' will require extra design requirements during a project, or extra files upon completion of a project. The client will be informed that the alterations or changes requested fall outside the scope of the original estimate. If the client wishes these alterations to be made they must agree in writing, and a proportionate hourly fee will be payable. Should the additional design not initially quoted for be requested during the design process, a progress payment will be payable prior to further work being carried out.

AMENDMENTS TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS
All and any amendments to the terms and conditions outlined in this submission must be provided in writing by 'The Client' and signed by an authorized representative of 'Yeehaa Creative' prior to the commencement of work outlined in this submission.

CREATIVE DISCLAIMER
'Yeehaa Creative' take a professional approach in providing creative solutions based on a design brief that the client has provided and to the best of our ability through an immersive and collaborative design process. Our strategic objective is to meet and exceed a client's expectations through consultation and creating a design solution to resolve the client's design brief. Design, graphic design, visual communications, marketing strategy and creative content are all subjective art forms thus, 'Yeehaa Creative' cannot be held responsible for any variations between client expectation and outcome that have not been addressed throughout the consultative design process.
WE DO OUR HOMEWORK
This is a research & development phase that has us looking at your business, project objectives, SWOT analysis, target audience, demographic and competitors. This is based on the design brief which we may continue to refine and develop so that we nail down the right approach first time to create a design solution.
IDEA GENERATION
Good design is much about great ideas as it is about visually communicating them. We hit the design trail running with workshops, brainstorming then exploring and experimenting ideas further. We also turn to our resources for inspiration, and may create mood boards, do some word mapping or sketch out by hand some design concepts.
DRAFT DESIGN CONCEPTS
The design really starts taking shape. It's here we begin to digitalise and move onto software that enables us to create your design solution, generally producing up to 6 'first draft' concepts to present you with our rationale. It's here we begin taking your comments for review.
REVISE, REFINE, REFINE SOME MORE!
Based on your comments, we then focus on a chosen design concept to revise, refine and make any amendments until your happy. We may continue experimenting with variations based on your comments, but mostly decide on the general and lasting direction of the creative. We usually nail it with up to two rounds of revisions.
FINAL DESIGN CONCEPT
We present the final design concept to you and continue to refine with variations until it's just right! It's here that we really fuss over the detail. We have a real eye for design, we may nudge the alignment, tweak to the colour or change the hierarchy of the layout but by this stage we can see the final design solution.
Upon your final approval we provide finished artwork, prepare the requested file formats, purchasing licensing (e.g imagery and fonts where necessary) and with a balance payment, deliver the finished files by email or provide a link to a shared file storage. Good to go - ready for lift off!
APPROVAL & DELIVERY

Yeehaa Creative was brought on board to create the visual identity, corporate sponsorship proposal and collateral for the Sydney Morning Herald 'Wine Island Festival' as part of the Good Food Month. Anthony's attention to detail and beautiful aesthetics made my job so much easier as he brought the brief to life very quickly. The design alone helped spark interest in the inaugural festival. I would not hesitate to recommend Anthony to any future potential client.
Kris Francis
Creative Director DD agency
In the fashion and stylist world we do business where styles and trends come and go, it was important to find a compatible designer best suited to our brand and business. Yeehaa Creative delved into our brand, understood our strategic planning, where we were and where we wanted to be positioned in the market. Anthony has a clean and smart approach to creative, his ability to literally read our minds to convey a message through our visual identity was evident early on in the design process and it has resulted in a very pleasing solution to our design brief.
Penny Bennett
Yeehaa Creative created our branding and visual identity. I couldn't have been more happy. We had a specific brief but were creatively open to suggestions and the outcome was terrific, better than we had envisaged. Countless clients and friends have commented on how beautiful it looks and it has added to my bottom line as a result. I couldn't recommend Yeehaa Creative more highly, especially due to the level of professionalism and creativity in providing a visual solution.
