Creative Design

The manufacture of our products relies on a comprehensive understanding of all manufacturing techniques applicable in our field.
Whatever the products, whatever the language we have the design skills and translators to ensure that all details required in a design are accurately reproduced.


The process and term we use is metal compatible, as what can be printed cannot always be made as metal and this conversion whilst being faithful to the design is a Selcraft strength used time and again.
Whilst a Selcraft made product is remarkable and identifiable as ours, the starting point is the design and artwork.
Selcraft offer many options to create a product that meets our client expectations. Depending on what that product is may mean some or all of the following stages would be used.


Firstly we discuss with the client what precisely the item is with regards to design, purpose, size, detail and application. If it is an existing item we may suggest areas of improvement yet still remain true to the design; or the client may supply a product as a starting point for us to develop an alternative product to meet their needs.
Secondly from this information we create a written brief to capture these points in detail for client approval.


Thirdly if required we can produce a series of pencil sketches or drafts that enable a fast visualisation of the product for client approval or response. At this stage it may be necessary to perform this exercise several times due to client feedback until we have a mutual agreement and a starting point to develop. This is time well spent as it is the basis for all that follows.
Fourthly we produce a colour visualisation with additional technical information relating to dimensions and appearance as this is still a paper image and not the actual item
All these stages are to ensure confidence and certainty between all parties.


Once the colour artwork is approved we then produce a finished pre-production sample for client assurance and agreement at which time after we would then commence with full production.
Selcraft when creating designs for the client considers the heritage of the product and how it would be made in a traditional way and combines this with 21st century technology to bring the design to life, both at the visualisation stage, and finally at the production stage.
Selcraft when possible research and introduce with their specialist suppliers into their products technical ingenuity by using the latest processes and techniques, frequently at the bequest of the client that hitherto would be unachievable.
