A Streamlined Timeline Process.

We Work Efficiently And Effectivley To Meet All Deadlines.

Our team will develop a production schedule for each project or campaign with responsibilities outlined for our agency and client. This ensures a smooth exchange of information and holds us accountable for all deliverables. We are flexible to work with and are accustomed to collaborating with multiple stakeholders. We perform all work in-house and consistently meet our clients’ most pressing needs.

Project Details Approved

When we kick off a new project, we identify priorities and gain strategy approval before moving forward with the creative process. Deliverable dates are planned and agreed upon at the start of every project.

Project Management

We document all aspects of a project and keep our clients updated at every stage. Typically, Liz will function as your primary point of contact, but you will have access to the expertise of all our core team members. Liz will provide you with a production schedule to keep track of key dates.

Copywriting Stage

Our copywriter will work with you to develop compelling copy that reflects the style and tone of your brand. For digital projects, she will employ best SEO tactics to maximize website traffic. You will have the opportunity to revise the copy before it goes into the design stage.

Design Stage

Preliminary design concepts will be shown for approval. Once the design is approved, we will carry it through the rest of the project and methodically build out campaigns.

Most of the copy should be approved at this stage, but content changes are still welcome. We implement an approval process to ensure the highest quality standards.

Audience Build

Based on an approved media plan, we build out any audiences that need to be targeted.

A/B Testing

Some digital projects like landing pages and email blasts warrant A/B testing to determine which elements will perform the best.

File Handoff / Launch

Final approved files are prepared and handed off to you or your vendors for publishing or printing.

Fine Tuning

There is no “set it and forget it” at Linear Creative. Every campaign is treated with care like it’s a living thing. At various stages, our primary question is what worked and what can we do better?
