Before Shiny Shoe takes on new consulting projects, we always spend time with potential clients to gain a full understanding of their needs, budgets and the timelines built into their projects.
After we develop a mutual understanding, we offer an honest bid based on the scope of work and then, if necessary, negotiate the budget and size of the project until both parties are satisfied. Once we enter the contract phase, we break our work down into milestones to make sure we’re using our team efficiently and progressing steadily toward pre-determined deadlines.
After a project is underway, we’re extremely adaptable to the working styles of our clients, which means we’re comfortable with a large amount of open communication as well as with a hands-off approach to project fulfillment.
Our meticulous process is important because clients rely on our ability to set – and then reliably meet – achievable deadlines. Shiny Shoe is highly respected throughout the gaming community not only for the quality of our work, but also for honoring budgets and completion dates. Just as important, we always budget time and personnel for top-flight quality assurance (QA) to make sure our work is as polished as it can be.
By taking our time before jumping into new projects, we get to know the client and determine if we’re a good fit for their needs. We also make sure the proposed project is one that will challenge and motivate our team to create work that both the client and Shiny Shoe can be proud of.
