Design is such an arbitrary science that it's never easy to get two parties to agree 100% on the way a project should look. When the two parties are the client and designer that can provide problems. When a designer sits down to have a first-up meeting with the client it is to thrash out all the basic details of what needs to be done and how the design should look. But how can both sides have all the criteria in front of them so that both teams are on the same page all the way down the line? Osmosis is a simple design project tool for creating fully customized questionnaires to map out all the details of a campaign and save you time by preventing your having to keep going back and forth asking for further details and clarifications.
Osmosis is one of those really useful sets of design tools that simplifies the whole process of mapping out all the elements of the design process. It helps designers and other creative people save a lot of time by nailing down the details of a project before you get started on it and keeps everyone on track right the way through the whole creative process. What generally happens at the first designer/client meeting is to sit down and set the parameters and all the main details of the campaign. After that tends to come a series of emails or phone calls at regular intervals to clarify various issues that may have been forgotten about or have proven problematic during the process. There are a myriad of questions that need to be asked in order to fulfill the job to the client's satisfaction and that's where this app comes to your aid. It lets you create fully customizable and reusable questionnaires and design briefs to gather all the right information before even starting the creation process. Add more questions as you go to build up the knowledge base of the project and create a template to use as the basis for the next client. No more phone calls and no more back and forth emails because you will have all the information in front of you. Osmosis delivers all your information on one page and you can share it within the app or via email. And just in case there is a dispute about the finished project Osmosis gives both parties a signable contract to create a very transparent and clean work agreement.
Any of us who are involved in creating a design project for a customer knows the dread of showing them what you think is the finished article and finding out that you have forgotten a key element or your client has changed their minds on the way they want it presented. Creating questionnaires that cover all aspects of the design ensures that you don't waste time re-doing work and, by both sides signing off on them, it also makes sure that both sides stick to the criteria discussed. So forget about endless back and forth emails to confirm details as Osmosis gives both sides the into needed and any modifications on one page within the app. Simple, effective and time saving.
