The Ethos Behind MadeByShape: The Core Values that Shape Us

Shape April 2022 HR 97
Updated on 01 Mar 2024

At MadeByShape, our ethos is simple – We produce good work for good people.

We believe that by focusing on creating a positive, collaborative experience for our clients, we don't just deliver a project; we build relationships that last. The outcome? Work that speaks for itself and clients who become our advocates, bringing more opportunities through their recommendations and continuous collaboration

Here’s a closer look at the principles that guide every step we take:

Client-Centric Collaboration: Every project begins with the mindset that it's a joint venture, a creative partnership aimed at crafting something truly spectacular – a portfolio gem for both us and our client. We dive in with the intent to understand, not just your requirements, but your vision – your brand's heartbeat.

Creating Comfortable Conversations: Whether it's a casual catch-up in a coffee shop or a structured meeting in our studio, our goal is to make you feel at home. We want every interaction with MadeByShape to leave you feeling informed, involved, and excited about the journey.

Simplifying the Complex: Our process is designed to be transparent and jargon-free. We cut through the waffle/technical chatter, presenting you with a proposal that's as clear as it is comprehensive. It's about making sure you're not just on board but also in tune with every aspect of the project.

Starting on the Same Page: Alignment from the outset is crucial. We initiate projects by sharing references, setting a clear direction, and ensuring that both parties share a unified vision. It's not just about being on the same page; it's about drawing that page together.

Designing, Refining, Perfecting: The design phase is a dynamic dialogue. We present, you feedback, and together we refine. Ensuring that each element, each page, not only meets but exceeds your expectations.

From Concept to CMS: Once the design is dialled in, our technical maestros take the reins. We bring the visual concept to life, integrating it meticulously with Craft CMS, setting the stage for inserting content.

Content with a Purpose: Content insertion isn't just a task; it's a craft. We ensure that every word, and every image is placed with purpose, enhancing the design, engaging the visitor, and elevating your brand's narrative.

Test, Debug and Tweak: Before we take your site live, the final stage involves debugging and testing before we launch the site. This helps us to iron out any wrinkles, ensure compatibility across browsers, and perfect the user experience. It's the final step in our commitment to quality, a testament to our ethos of excellence.

At MadeByShape, our ethos isn't just about the work we do; it's about the way we do it. It's about creating a stress-free journey, ensuring that every project is not just a task but a testament to a partnership built on trust, creativity, and a shared vision of excellence. 

We understand that behind every project is a dream, a vision, a story waiting to be told. That’s why we approach each project not just as a task to be completed, but as a narrative to be woven, with your brand as the main character.

We believe that a happy team leads to happy clients, and this belief is the cornerstone of our approach. Regular team outings, individual check-ins, and an environment that champions open communication and mutual respect – all these elements come together to create a workspace where innovation thrives and boundaries are pushed.

In essence, the ethos of MadeByShape is all about blending quality, and creativity, with a genuine care for the people we work with and for. It's not just about the websites we build or the designs we create; it's about the experiences we deliver and the lasting impressions we leave
