OUR PROCESS

Stout Heart uses tested methods and tools to get you the best results from your project. Though we leave plenty of room for spontaneous inspiration and moments of zen, our process usually looks like this:

Step

1

Collective Backdrop Building

Clarity is key during the creative process and while no one knows your business like you do, we do our best to come close. During this discovery process, we work with our clients to tap their knowledge, educate ourselves, identify challenges and objectives, and build a collective backdrop for the task at hand.

Foster a relationship

Industry immersion

Cross-education

Identification of brand challenges

Step

2

Consumer Hedonics & Discovery

After looking to our clients for an understanding of their brand, we turn to the consumer to better understand their mindset. This requires a bit of creative psychology and a whole lot of research. With this in mind, we’re ready to begin the creative process.

3

Creative Brief Development

Boiling our learning down into its most essential tidbits, we brief the Stout Heart creative team on project expectations, requirements, and objectives. We love to keep our clients involved in this phase.

Collaborative Creative Process

Our team is about as integrated as you get, with account service, development, and creative playing equal parts to help your project succeed. Based on the briefing, we work to bring your project to life, regardless of media, size, or objective. We’re not fans of the dog and pony show process that many agencies adopt, preferring that clients play an active role in the creative process to ensure that we can course-correct early and often whenever needed.

5

Production

More often than not, projects under our roof undergo some form of creative and production simultaneously. It is essential that the designer talk to the development or production team and vice versa to guarantee that we are creating something that can be built elegantly and that the user experience never suffers, whether on a screen or on paper.

Building & deployment, including design and technical QA

6

Measurement

Regardless of the arena, our goal is always to show you how we’ve provided value. We believe in campaign monitoring, reporting on analytics, and recommending improvements based on what we find, all with the objective of moving our work closer to achieving its objectives.
