Process

Murmure’s process of creation stems from a particular methodology of work which enables us to meet your requirements. We define your goals and our solutions to reach them together.

Brainstorming

After presenting your request we set your aims and objectives and the necessary work to reach them together. We analyse needs and stakes, target people and context, in order to set up both a guideline and a work-back schedule so the project can develop efficiently.

Thinking process

In constantly experimenting and extending our research, we consider words such as curiosity, desire and daring to be daily values in our work. This thinking process is also the creative stage. It is not about waiting for inspiration but rather real work through research and rigorous experiments.

Design

Bringing the idea to life is designer’s job: he is the painter’s brush, the writer’s pen. In always pursuing our ideas and approach to their limits we pay great attention to detail. We are uncompromising when it comes to graphic quality, mainly because of our knowledge of its technical constraints.

“Our products are the result of different stages of specific work”

Julien Alirol - Art Director & Partner

Exchanges

Because we work in such close collaboration with our clients, your feedback and comments are of great importance to us during the process. Discussing views and ideas with you just as much as between us is an essential stage of the process and helps the project come together successfully.

Completion

The final product is a reflection of our collaboration as it is the result of a contribution between you and the agency, We think that behind a good project always lies a good client.

The team

At least one of us is behind every project that we execute.

Guillaume Brindon

“I was around here, it looked like a nice and clean place, so I entered in.”
