No project is too big... so far.
Too much black coffee is a design company who pride themselves on producing high quality imaginative graphic brands, animations & effects work for broadcast, corporate & multi media clients. We believe that the idea comes first. A successful idea comes from a close relationship & understanding of the client, their needs and their goals. From here it is ‘ideas unlimited’... hold on tight for a roller coaster ride of the imagination. Coming up with bright, new ideas and forming them into a strong, creative solution to the brief is our bread and butter. Whether it is live action, studio or location production & direction, cameras & lighting we have the know how & ability. Whether it is 2d or 3d graphics & animations, effects and design we have the experience. Now the fun really starts when we start mixing them all together...
Each job is individual & each project has it's own set of criteria so we at TMBC approach each job in a bespoke manor.
Our initial consultation with the client is about listening, understanding and ascertaining their needs, their message, their goals as well as the budget. This ensures a clear, concise brief between client & designer.
Our highly skilled creatives take this brief & start imagining and evolving initial ideas. Once a certain level of ideas & visuals are reached we meet again with the client, face to face or on-line, to focus our direction. This is a two-way, fluid communication to hone down likes, dislikes, feels & direction. This process continues until a design solution is developed & agreed upon. In this manor, with the client involved in the process, we are able to ensure they receive 'exactly' what they want.
From here we have a clear direction and are in a strong position to go into production. Due to the many processes involved (production can range from logo art working, builds in 3d, shoots, compositing etc) it is important to keep the client continually updated of our progress. We do this via emailing stills or video formats. In this way we can make small changes as we work to ensure you receive exactly what you need.
Finally we deliver the finished work ...
on time, on budget and making you look fantastic!
