How To Implement Workflow Management In Graphic Design

By Sylvain Doré on March 22, 2022 12:53:00 PM CET

All businesses and organizations always deal with at least one workflow, and graphic design businesses are no exception. The more efficient a business can execute its workflow(s), the more effective and productive it will be as an organization. This is where workflow management comes in.


Workflow management is an effort to map, analyze, and optimize a workflow to be as efficient as possible. However, in graphic design businesses and creative businesses, a key challenge in implementing workflow management is finding the right balance between maintaining creativity and optimizing the workflow.

Workflow management, in essence, is about providing structure to a workflow to ensure efficiency. Still, it's also no secret that structure and rigidity may limit creativity, which is essential for a creative business like a graphic design agency.

In this guide, we will discuss how to effectively implement workflow management in graphic design, covering the following elements:

  • What is workflow management?

How to Create and Optimize an Approval Process

By Sylvain Doré on March 17, 2022 3:58:00 PM CET

Virtually all organizations involve at least one approval process in their day-to-day operations, from as 'simple' as submitting a daily report for review to presenting an annual strategy to be reviewed by the board of directors.


Yet, it's no secret that approval processes can be the bane of efficiency, full of delays, endless revision cycles, and even disputes.

Probably you've experienced the pain of submitting something for review, waiting for days until you've finally got feedback, only for the higher-ups or the clients to ask for another revision. Even worse, the inefficient time you've spent waiting for approval can often be as long or even longer than the time you've spent on the project.

The efficiency of the approval process will directly affect the organization's overall efficiency and productivity. Poor approval processes will damage the business's overall performance, so the organization will need more time and resources to achieve its objectives.

In this guide, we will learn all you need to know about creating an effective and efficient approval process, and by the end of this guide, you'd have learned about:


  • What is a process? Process VS workflow

  • What is an approval process?

  • Key challenges to ensuring the efficiency of an approval process

  • Best practices for approval process efficiency

  • How you can streamline and optimize your approval workflows
