The design process is an organized method for approaching any design project, problem or challenge. This is systematic process that helps designers meet client needs in an efficient and effective manner. This process is truly a dynamic process where the designer is constantly revisiting previous steps to assure complete coverage, explore alternative responses and solutions, and deepen the understanding of the project and client needs. Many clients like to be acquainted with the various phases of the design process. We also believe every client has the right to be as familiar with the services we provide as possible. We have described for you in detail the systematic process we employ in our day-to-day work. It is important to note that we tailor this process to each new project and new client’s wishes.



Establishing contact with client and outline project scope, defining the project completion deadline and budget (general project statement)
Select space(s) to be dealt with (taking photographs. If no plans for existing space are available, the designer must make a carefully measured survey)
Perform interviews and collect data through prepared client questionnaire form (report)
Plan designer-client relation (sign a contract)
Develop general plan. This is a draft describing the general requirements of the project and listing the spaces called for, with their functions and specific needs (written draft)
Review and revise general plan and obtain client approval (letter of agreement) – client has an opportunity to add or subtract information, make changes, and correct errors


Develop preliminary design. Creativity comes into play in the effort to find approaches that will be original, aesthetically satisfying, valid solutions to the problems defined though general plan (preliminary sketches)
Develop preliminary plan. During this phase of the process, a designer will start with technical drawings of the space to test alternatives as ideas develop; they provide an ideal way to study space allocations, placement of walls and openings, and location of major furniture elements with generally fixed locations (2D floor plans, 3D visualizations)
Review 2D floor plans and 3D visualizations with client
Revise and finalizing preliminaries and obtain client approval (letter of agreement) – client has an opportunity to add or subtract information, make changes, and correct errors


Make formal drawings (2D technical drawings: front elevation, floor plan, side elevation, installation plans,3D visualizations) in coordination with next steps:
Select materials, colors and finishes; floor, wall and ceiling coatings (charts and samples)
Select items for purchase (Furniture lists, Lighting lists, Textile lists, decoration etc.)
In the case of custom made furniture, make detailed furniture plans (orthogonal projections)
Installation plans (as needed); lighting plans, electrical plans, etc.
Obtain bids – send technical drawings and specifications to possible contractors who submit bid prices, which are amounts for which the bidder guarantees to perform the work specified (written bids)
Estimate and refine costs and set deadline for project finishing (report)
Make presentation to client (presentation)
Make revisions as necessary (list)
Obtain client approval (letter of agreement)


Prepare final technical drawings (2D technical drawings: front elevation, floor plan, side elevation, installation plans, 3D visualizations)
Gather final cost estimates (written estimates)
Prepare specifications – written descriptions of materials, methods of construction or production, and other details not easily made clear in drawings (specifications)
Make time schedules’ and issue work orders (schedules)
Select contractors (written contracts)
Prepare and issue purchase orders – furniture, light fixtures and so on. Coordinating delivery schedules remains a design responsibility (written orders)
Obtain client approval (letter of agreement)


Supervise construction
Coordinate work and deliveries

List errors and defects (lists)
