We base our design approach on understanding, appreciating, strategising, communicating and creativity focus.
Which lead us to create a 5 step design process. This helps our clients and Aquila Studio work together, guiding in the right creative thinking and solutions, in delivering vision, value and success.
into the challenge
The first step of the design process, covers the start of the project and our journey together.
We start by asking you some questions:
- What business are you in?
- Unique Selling Proposition (USP)
- What makes your client’s service or product special?
- Your Objectives
- What are your goals for the project? When is it a success?
- Your Target Audience
- Who are your customers?
- Your Market Position
- How is your business position, compared to your competitors?
- Your Deliverables
- What is the company’s (or brand’s) personality?
- Your likes and dislikes
- Timeline and Milestones
- Your Budget? How much are you willing to invest?
We then look to the world in a fresh way, for new ideas, notice new things for goals, requirements and gather insights for research.
Defining the project
areas that need to be
The second step of the design process, represents the definition stage, in which we make sense of all the possibilities we identified in the Discovery step. The goals now are to develop, what matters? What should be acted on first? Then what is feasible to create a clear creative brief that answers the fundamental design challenge.
Design & Develop - Solutions

Design & Develop +
The third area of the design process, marks a period of design and development. Where concepts are created, project plans, mock-ups, prototypes are tested and iterated. This phase of the design process allows trials and errors, that help us together improve and refine the final designs, in problem definition and design brief answering.

The final steps of the design process is delivering and deploying the resulting project to be finalised, produced and launched.
