To link new content to existing assets, ideas and strategy
Sometimes a supplier wants a great piece in their portfolio. Or they hunt for a specific industry and are willing to invest a bit into contacts. I use these factors to do more for less.
To find an effective and motivated supplier
I will build documents and decks that elaborate your ideas for suppliers and internal stakeholders alike. I typically interview stakeholders to get their viewpoints and prepare the materials to cover those.
A common problem in graphic production is to align on what could be changed and when. I will be pointing out if and when further amendments are undesired or affect the project deadlines.
To flag when changes are irreversible
We will make a production plan with milestones from the very start so you'll be able to see what's being delivered when.
For you to know what to expect and when
I will help define reasonable responsibility and sanctions to be included in the contract and negotiate it together with you.

If something goes wrong, I'll know well in advance so everyone could be prepared
