Our Branding Design Process

Our design process is collaborative from start to finish.

Through a series of questionnaires and exercises, Harford Designs captures the essence of your business and designs around your ideal client and their distinct wants and needs.

Trust your brand with a company that understands the importance of reputation and can articulate your values and energy through form and composition.

Before we plunge right into the design, we review your company’s unique needs, vision, and mission through a questionnaire and numerous phone calls and Zoom meetings.

We significantly narrow in on your target audience to guarantee that every design speaks directly to your top clientele.

2

After careful research into the industry, your competition, and your business’ likes and dislikes, we present you with various design concepts to ascertain your design aesthetic.

This step is especially vital for those who aren’t sure of their design style and preferences.
