The Process

Getting in touch: 

Short briefing about which service(s) you need for your project. List what needs to be done. When is your deadline? If we have capacities for your project, please be prepared to answer the following questions as accurately as possible (via email or call). 

  • Who is the target audience (e.g. scientists, general public, etc.)?

  • Where are you planning to use this figure (e.g. on your website, in an advertisement, on a poster, etc? Is it for print, screens, or web? Both?)

  • If you need this for print, for how many copies will it approximately be?

  • In which format do you need this (e.g. dimensions, data formats)?

  • For how much time are you planning to use this figure approximately (e.g. up to 1 year, up to 3 years, forever)?

  • Are you planning to use this e.g. regionally, Europe-wide, etc?

  • Do you need rights to edit this after the purchase?

  • And very important: For when do you need this, when is your deadline?
