The YMI process involves a seamless flow of the steps we take to achieve the end goal. The keyword here is ‘Cohesiveness’. Each step is tailored to your needs.
Research / Familiarisation and strategy
Understanding a brand/ client’s intent, values and narrative allows YMI to define its direction. Here hands-on research combines with analysis and conversation.
This involves an initial consultation where we discuss your business. Every issue or concern you have will be sorted out here as well as an in-depth discussion on our strategies.
At YMI, we take the time to understand our clients’ needs and values so that our wants do not subsume into yours. Your inspiration is a great starting point that gives us insight into your brand.
Dream / Concept Design
Following our research stage, where we define market and customer insight, we develop disruptive, creative concepts.
Here concepts and strategies find form in early, aspirational designs.
A mood board will guide the process, first focusing on style, atmosphere, and character. Once all that is sorted out, we’ll move on to choosing materials that will match the experience we want to convey.
Draw / Schematic Design
This is where we smooth those edges out. At this point, you’ll see what we’ve come up with so far so you can add your invaluable input.
Following feedback and discussion, aspirational designs are developed further, thinking about practical, real world application. Functional needs are considered, drawing a connection between the concepts and strategy previously conceived.
We’ll fine-tune and adjust as needed so the concept grows into actual, practicable designs. Schematic architectural drawings and 3D rendered images are utilized here to materialize your dream.
Sampling Finishes Specifications
Detail / Detailed Design
Here, the drawings and images from the schematic design stage will be developed in fully detail all elements producing final drawings, specifications and artwork (where necessary), detailing materials, locations and installation methods.
We will produce material and furniture specification schedules and profile drawing packages along with an accurate bill of quantities (if required).
Lighting plan and specification
Tender package (if required)
Estimates from contractors (if required)
Deliver / Implement
YMI works closely with suppliers and contractors to ensure that the vision for the project is maintained and realised faithfully. By providing regular direction on design intent, Yaiza Martinez Interiors is able to control quality standards until the point of completion, ultimately producing a project that has been carefully considered and overseen from inception to delivery. This involves thorough inspections and the final styling.
Ultimately, we aim to elevate your brand with a befitting design that suits your new ideas and concepts.
