Discovery & Design Process for The Collection

Timeline: 6-12 weeks

Step 1


Akin will schedule a consultation with you to gather more information about you and your family, stories you may have to share, documents and records, and your memorabilia items. This will help determine what design requirements are needed for your collection.

Step 2

Discovery Presentation

We will compile and present the information gathered through conversations with you, as well as any new research discoveries, in order to establish what content you would like to include in your collection.

Step 3

Design Presentation

Using the established content, sourced photos, records, and memorabilia, Akin will present designs for all items in the collection representative of your family's unique history.

Step 4

Proofing, Fabrication, Printing & Delivery

The presented design will be reviewed by both parties for accuracy and to accommodate personal preferences — and the required changes will be implemented for your approval.
The approved design will be sent for fabrication and printing — and upon completion, your collection is delivered to your door!
