Osmosis is a tool that designers can use to cut through the clutter and get to the heart of whatever it is their clients really want. By sending out straightforward questionnaires at the beginning of each project, designers can make sure they are meeting the needs of their most finicky clients.
Whether you work solo or as part of a team, you’ll appreciate the way Osmosis helps you do business. Rather than bouncing emails back and forth with your client in an effort to find out what he or she really wants, just log in to Osmosis and create a simple questionnaire. The questionnaires you develop can be made from scratch, or you can adapt a questionnaire you previously used on a similar project. Add questions – making sure to give clients ample space to provide their written responses – and include inspiration URLs as examples while you’re still looking to pinpoint a client’s exact style. Osmosis lets you upload files that your client can download and review at any time, and organizes comments into a threaded format for easy sorting.
When your questionnaire is designed and ready to go, send it to your client with a private and secure link. Clients don’t have to worry about putting in any passwords or login names; they can just click once to view all the information you’ve put together. Designers can also use Osmosis to organize multiple projects at all stages of completion, making it easy to convert leads to open projects, and open projects to completed projects.
