01 Initial Consultation
An initial meeting is held to translate as much information to the Designer as possible about the project, its requirements and the needs of the Client. The more information the Designer can glean from this meeting the better as this information will factor heavily in the thought experimentation process that the Designer will use in developing the project from this point on. In this meeting the Client will also be taken through previously undertaken projects so that they have a clear expectation of what to expect throughout their own project.
Although F3 is very conscientious about protecting a clients Invention you may feel more comfortable with an official document in place before you disclose your ideas.
