1. Initial Consultation
Meeting with the client we listen carefully to their brief, offering initial ideas and thoughts on the best artwork for the space. We offer this service on a complimentary basis and feel that it is crucial in helping our understanding of the client’s brand, aesthetic and budget.
Using our extensive database as well as our inhouse team of designers we develop ideas from initial discussions. We carry out extensive research to ensure we are using the most relevant artists and designs to each specific client. During the conceptualisation stage we create sketches and where necessary visuals to allow the client to full understand the proposed concepts. We work closely with material boards and to ensure the artwork both compliments and enhances the space. We always consider the artwork within the space and very much an integrated part of the design.
Our art consultants present a comprehensive presentation of all developed concepts tailored specifically to the clients brief. Presentations include relevant samples, as well as an initial idea of costings. We present a number of concepts for each space, and outline any preferred materials, finishes and colour palette.
4. Budget Management
We are experienced with working on a wide range of budgets – to low cost single items, to extensive budgets covering thousands of pieces. We prudently factor in every cost to each project. Either acting as an agent for our client or independently we carefully manage all aspects of the budget to ensure the project is completed under budget and on time.
Once the artwork has been signed off and is ready for collection we organise every aspect of the logistics procedure, whether the artwork is being picked up locally or internationally. We meticulously plan and organise all crating, labelling, insurance and logistics to ensure the smooth delivery of artwork to their destination. It is crucial that an artwork arrives in prestine condition so we work with dedicated and expert art handlers to ensure the artwork is well looked after.
Working with fully insured installers we can oversee the complete installation of all artwork. We are able to personally stay onsite during the installation process to make sure that an artwork is hung according to a clients specifications. We are able to able to supply appropriate fixings and advise on the correct hanging of the artwork – whether these are simple framed pieces or complex, large scale installations.
