Phases

KMH Kreations Project Process

The project process is very straightforward.   All activity in the process focuses on and center on the client’s involvement.   In each phase, the project manager consults and more importantly works with the client to optimize the data and decisions both into and out of the phase. The process is part of the central core principles of KMH Kreations.


KMH Kreations Project Process

Phase 1 – DESIGN CONCEPT

The process starts with general ideas from the client. The client’s vision and direction join with KMH Kreations integration actions to clarify a design that best meets the client’s objectives. Our content questionnaire is the tool that systematically leads us through this critical phase. The results are a detailed design concept.

Phase 2 – CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT

With the clients information in hand, our design team works to blend and integrate the design concept into design samples that are just first steps used to draw from the client and the entire team suggested changes through an iterative process to move the design concept to a basic design draft.

Phase 3 – PROJECT MODIFICATIONS

Major changes are behind the team and now they are working to fine tune the project. During this phase, the client begins to see the project actually take shape and convey the message they desire. The project is loaded with sample structure and content to evaluate adherence to project design concept and objectives.

Phase 4 – CONTENT DEVELOPMENT

Following final design approval, specific content details such as words, pictures and colors defined and then evaluated to insure the deployed design fulfills the design objectives. The client is actively involved in providing content and approving the results. This is where all the work done in phase one, 2 and 3 comes to life.

Phase 5 – FINAL REVIEW AND DEPLOYMENT

Our team posts the content developed in Phase 4 and does final reviews to check for content disconnects. The entire team does simple things such as a spelling or grammar and then check again to insure the message and feelings conveyed meet the design concept and objectives. Once our team and the clients give their final approval, the actual project deployment occurs and the Maintenance cycle begins the process again.

Design Concept

 

Phase 1 – DESIGN CONCEPT

The process starts with general ideas from the client. The client’s vision and direction join with KMH Kreations integration actions to clarify a design that best meets the client’s objectives. Our content questionnaire is the tool that systematically leads us through this critical phase. The results are a detailed Design Concept.

The various tools are discussed and the tool's involvement determined.  This helps focus KMH Kreations activities during the next phase.  When the purpose and intent are clarified, a revised cost proposal is drafted.  This provides a  better look at the actual scope of the project and the cost associated with it. Once the Design Concept is understood, we move to the next phase.

For each of our services the process flow is the same but the actual activties vary just a bit.

Internet Marketing

The process orginates from ideas and approaches that have been shared with KMH Kreations. The difference in the process is when we do Internet Marketing, KMH Kreations starts from the very basic ideas of the client and then provides detailed information during the early part of DESIGN CONCEPT back to the client to inform them on best approaches for their desired Marketing outcome.

Website Design and Management 

For Website Design and Management this phase starts from a client stating they want either a new Website or they wish to refresh their current site. These designs will reflect the clients initial thoughts on what they want and the colors they prefer. We then suggest design and content concepts to the client to guide them to the best approaches for their desired outcome. 

E-Commerces

For E-Commerces the difference from a basic web design project is the addition of a Shopping Cart or an Online Catalog. These designs will reflect the clients initial thoughts on what they want and the colors they prefer. We then suggest design and E-commerces content concepts to the client to guide them to the best approaches for their desired outcome.

Publications

This phase starts when a client stating they have a publication or manual that they would like to have prepared and "camera ready" for the printer. There are a series of discussions to make sure the Design Concept is understood.  This provides a  better look at the actual scope of the project and the cost associated with it. As part of the discussion is the requested delivery date.  We can make plans with your or our printer for publication.  Fees vary widely for this type of service, feel free to contact us and we will provide you with a "No Obligation" quote. 


Project Modifications


Phase 3 – PROJECT MODIFICATIONS

Major changes are behind the team and now they are working to fine tune the project. During this phase, the client begins to see the project actually take shape and convey the message they desire.

The project is loaded with sample structure and content to evaluate adherence to project design concept and objectives.  The PROJECT MODIFICATIONS phase typically is quite short,  if the work done in phase 1 and 2 are done properly and good discussions have occurred. If not, this is when the client makes those final adjustments.

For each of our services the process flow is the same but the actual activties vary just a bit

 

Internet Marketing

The PROJECT MODIFICATIONS phase takes the ideas and Market Strategy from phase 1 and 2 to test and modify them to adhear to the Project's Financial and Results' objectives. The changes that come out of this phase put reality details into the concept Market plan for use in the next phase.

Website Design and Management

The site layout is in place but actual content has not been added, thus making it is easy to actually change things without doing expensive modifications. The client now starts to see what the content and pictures needed to complete the site. Once the questions have detailed answers and actual details are inplace it is time to move on to the next phase.

E-Commerces

The Shopping Cart or Product Catalog layout is in place with a few sample products, but actual content has not been added, thus making it is easy to actually change things without doing expensive modifications. The client now starts to see the scope of work needed to complete the site.  Once the product issues and content requests are detailed and actual details are starting to provided it is time to move on to the next phase.

Publications

The publication's layout is in place but actual content has not been added, thus making it is easy to actually change things without doing expensive modifications. The client now starts to see what they need to provide in the order of details to complete the document. This phase is when the actual content is discussed and amount of type of content is defined.  Once the actual content starts to arrive it is time to move to the next phase.

 

 

 

 

Concept Development


Phase 2 – CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT

With the clients information in hand, our design team works to blend and integrate the design concept into design samples that are just first steps used to draw from the client and the entire team suggested changes through an iterative process to move the design concept to a basic design draft.

 

 

For each of our services the process flow is the same but the actual activties vary just a bit

Internet Marketing

During CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT phase, KMH Kreations is doing research and then develops a Market Strategy tailored to the client.  This phase is when the actual tools that were defined during Design Concept are developed into themes, defined timing and duration.  The campaign is outlined and ready for final detail development.

Website Design and Management

CONTENT DEVELOPMENT phase is just that, now the team knows what and how the client wants ton the website.  The tough work begins to "add meat to the bones" of the Design Concept.  During this phase, KMH Kreations takes raw data from the client, develops and details the actual web-page content that is then shared with the client for their approval.  Each element of the plan is completed and then approved.

E-Commerces

During CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT phase, KMH Kreations is actually building the Shopping Cart or Product Catalog and developing the layouts for the various elements/tools of the site.  This phase is when the actual modules and support structure that were defined during Design Concept are loaded into a site.  A few sample products are loaded into the web site and shared with the client.  The site typically is located on our server and is a working demo that is available to the client but not to the Internet.  This is when the site starts to take shape and the general feeling of the site come alive.

Publications

During CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT phase, KMH Kreations is actually takes the Design Concept and based on the discussions with the client we then typically develop 2 or 3 design layouts. This is when the publication or manual starts to take shape and the general feeling of the document is seen.

 

Content Development


Phase 4 – CONTENT DEVELOPMENT

Following final design approval, specific content details such as words, pictures and colors defined and then evaluated to insure the deployed design fulfills the design objectives. The client is actively involved in providing content and approving the results. This is where all the work done in phase one, 2 and 3 comes to life.

 

For each of our services the process flow is the same but the actual activties vary just a bit

Internet Marketing

The team knows what and how the client wants to deploy the campaign.  The tough work begins to "add meat to the bones" of the Design Concept and Market Strategy.  Again during this phase, KMH Kreations develops and shares data and content with the client for their approval.  Each element of the plan is completed and then approved.

Web Design and Management

KMH Kreations is actually building the website and developing the layouts for the various elements/tools of the site.  This phase is when the actual modules and support structure that were defined during Design Concept are loaded into a site.  This site typically is located on our server and is a working demo that is available to the client but not to the Internet.  This is when the site starts to take shape and the general feeling of the site come alive.

E-Commerces

The team knows what and how the client wants to the build and populate the Shopping Cart or Product Cataloge.  The tough work begins to "add meat to the bones" of the Design Concept.  During this phase, KMH Kreations takes raw data from the client, develops and details the actual web-page content and loads products into the program.  Each element of the plan is completed and then approved.

Publications

Tthe team knows the content as defined during Design Concept and as it arrives it is loaded into the publication.  During this phase, KMH Kreations takes data from the client and places into the document layout; this is then shared with the client for their approval.  Each element of the document is completed and then approved.
