1.) WHAT I NEED TO GET STARTED

STYLE GUIDE

Brand style guide, colors, or any other specific design requirements.

These items can be uploaded to your basecamp project account or uploaded to your secure Google Drive folder.

2.) Basecamp

Basecamp is an awesome online platform for communication and project management. We’ll be using this to send messages, share files and track progress during the process. This will help alleviate content and images being lost in long email threads. Everyone loves email threads…right?! (Don’t worry you can still use your email. The messages will post directly to Basecamp!) Once your project is underway, you’ll receive an email to set up your Basecamp profile and we’ll be off and running!

3.) Google Drive

Google Drive is a great cloud-based image file/share system. We will create a specialized folder for you within our Google Drive, and you will receive an e-mail giving you access to easily drop your images, files, or videos right into the folder.
