About the website
the five phases of a project
That’s the “eureka” moment, the delightful moment of enlightenment in which you receive a seemingly good idea from creativity gods and that idea sticks with you even after you get sober or you have a good restoring night of sleep. Besides this, it appears the idea is not a copy of something you saw elsewhere but it even has originality features.
The idea you took over from the definition phase is still with you and you have started to think of it as worthy of your time and work. But how much of each? It’s the right moment for a test of feasibility and to write down a list of the resources and the assets that you will need and that would be in your disposition to face the journey.
It will be done, it is clear now. You need to break the whole deal into tasks and chronologically organize them: that’s a roadmap. And with a roadmap, the deadliest villain enters the scene: the deadline. A good tool in this phase is the SMART approach that breaks the process into Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Timely goals.
No more time for chatting: work has to be done, tasks must be assigned, tracked, and done, goals have to be reached and a deadline respected. Motivate yourself and your team, create hype, sacrifice sleep and fun but get the job fucking done.
OK, time to celebrate, but just a moment. Say thanks to your collaborators, and pay all your suppliers. Write a final report and be sure to send your creation into the world with all the equipment to become successful as you hope.
This website focuses on projects, which could be web-related ones, graphics, design, or other content areas. Furthermore, we are not necessarily talking about closed and realized projects but even projects at any kind of development, from a vague idea to full implementations and shipped to a client.
Projects are organized and posted according to a taxonomy based on their status and are composed of five different stages or phases.
Here are the projects categories linked to the projects in each phase:
My name is Daniele Prati and I’m a multidisciplinary content designer, interested in exploring, researching, and developing projects and content that combine different arts, disciplines, and platforms while being solid, functional, and unrepeatable.
I’m a location-independent freelance. I am available for commercial and non-profit projects and open to collaborating.
That’s my way of becoming myself.
