We have clients who come to us with a list of the materials that they think they need, and a tonne of budget worries concerning the cost of their production. We also have clients who come to us utterly exhausted from juggling their work load and their process - time to dedicate to consultations / packaging products etc on top of their projects is hard to find. This is where the journey mapping really helps, because we can identify not only what materials would work most efficiently for both their brand and their budget, but also what materials would save them time. It really helps to clear the client's head on where their money should be focused, where their time can be saved, and provides a clear direction for the project outcomes.
