Discussing the clients wishes
The first thing I do when I get a request to built a case, is to have an intensive talk with the client about what his/her wishes are - when possible in person. Here I have to distinguish between: 1) standard cases that I've built before and 2) first order custom made cases.
If it's a case that I've built before, a personal meeting is not that important - but I think about what could be optminised and talk to my client about this new perspective.
If it's a custom made case that I'm building for the first time we discuss what would be best suited for the purpose of the case application and then I consult about what is possible. Later during the case building process a second talk may be useful.
I set a high value in the communication with my clients!!
The sketch and design
After talking to my clients I make a rough sketch and then design the cases using the Flitecad software. It's proven to be a very handy too.
I like working old school as well as with the latest technology, as long as it's useful!
At the end of this stage a second talk may be useful for innovative cases.
Building the case
Using the precise data I get from my design software I now start building the babies!
My workshop is equiped with everything I need to build sustainable and effective - from... to...
When the building process is finished and I am perfectly satisfied, the clients get to approve the cases. If there is anything they don't like, I do my best to cater to their wants.
