What you will learn

Public and private clients require entirely different processes for design jobs. Both processes can be streamlined by utilizing the information provided in this podcast. Bob Lozaand Anton Werner unpack the crucial skills that a Graphic Designer needs to ensure that their designs are successfully translated into the finished product. 

Bob takes you through four design guideline phases that occur with private client projects. He speaks from a wealth of experience and uses case studies to reinforce these guidelines. Anton Werner explores designer/fabricator project coordination in the public sector by means of a 10 step process to a successful program. This podcast is connected with an in-depth intent document session called "Developing Better Design Intent Documents" by Mark Andreasson.
