Small Projects

Smaller projects can be just as complex with even more demanding clients and a high degree of risk. Designers working on smaller projects often require a broader knowledge, wide ranging skill set whilst having much more pressure on their time. Often torn between managing projects and small businesses it is essential that you have the information, tools and processes in place to maximise efficiency and manage risk but more importantly to free you up to focus on creative designs, satisfying clients and building your business.
