THE TRIED AND TRUE

Work Flow

Create

The producer creates a work order through Axis World Graphics or LUCI with a detailed job description. Contact information, specific assets, and deadlines are entered into the work order. After specifics are provided, the work order may be submitted to the hub.

Assign

The work order is received at the hub through Axis and reviewed by a coordinator. The coordinator assures that all necessary information has been provided, and then assigns the work order to an available designer.

Fulfill

The designer receives the work order. They carry out any preliminary planning and conceptualization, then swiftly compose the requested graphic. Open dialogue allows the designer to maintain all visual aesthetics and integrity of the work order.

Review

The designer submits the work order to their Senior Designer for review. The Senior Designer checks to make sure the requested graphic was accurately fulfilled, and also inspects for possible misspellings, inconsistencies, and technical errors.

Deliver

Once the work order has been approved by the senior designer, it is delivered back to the producer.

Final Approve

The requester conducts a final review of the work order which can be approved or rejected. The approved graphic is ready for broadcast/print/etc.
