A web design project was selected due to its inclusion of most of the parts of the various creative media project types across each of the four phases. Since the case study was related to the Academy for Creative Media website redesign project using a website for this example is particularly relevant.
As discussed before, this example is not meant to be applicable to all creative media projects. The specific implementation of the framework will vary for each project type
This phase begins once the initial contract for work has been agreed upon and signed. During each part of the phase, specific communication methods should be emphasized as follows:
Weekly in-person, teleconference, or telephone touch-base meetings are established. Some meetings may last only 10 minutes, with others going for an hour. Each meeting should include a follow up email to recap discussions, reiterate, expectations, and confirm action items.
(Mood Boards, Style Guides, Wireframes, Mockups, Prototypes): Similar to the Discovery phase, the first round of submissions are reviewed in-person or via teleconference, with subsequent submissions sent through email, video walkthroughs, and placement on the web project portal.
