The first point of contact, we assess the project, discuss the brief, client expectations and possible outcomes of the project. Here the client needs to be as clear as possible about what they expect from the specific project, so that we have a clear and concise brief in the research and design stage. This is charged at R1000.00 but credited back to the client if the project is approved.
