What Is Environmental Design?
Environment design has many different definitions and encompasses a wide range of design types. Simply put environmental designers create human spaces and signage for the community. Their goal is to be the minimalist in design with their design impact and how their work affects the environment. A more technical definition of environmental design would be the process of addressing environmental concerns when creating plans, policies, buildings, signage and more. It is considered in architecture, engineering, landscape architecture, urban planning and regional planning.

What are the steps involved in Environmental Design?
At COG Design, we believe that communication is the key to success. We have an easy step-by-step design process that ensures the technical aspects of the brief are met. The steps involved in environmental design include:
- Original Brief – We organise a time to meet or a conference call to discuss what is it exactly your project requires. Obviously the projects between OOH, Signage and POS are quite different, our approach is going to be varied in taking the brief. Then we turn this conversation into a formal brief and scope of works.
- Environment Audit – First we need to understand the location and the environment in which the design will function. This is often on site and our team will take an excursion to wherever this may be. We also need to understand signage sizes, measurements, specifications, fabrications, and materials so we may include our installers our third party media experts in this initial audit. This audit will build out a more comprehensive brief for design, production, quoting and ideally how well the end design will perform in its environment.
- Environment Design Concepts – We then create a range of design concepts for the specific brief. This will be based on your original brief and our audit. This will include a diverse selection of ideas that communicate your brand, products and services.
- Client Revision & Approval Of Concepts – We then send these design concepts for you to review. If there is one concept in particular you like we then work on enhancing the selected concept and match it to the environment and location in which the communication will take place.
- First Proof – Once we have client approval we send the artwork to production to achieve a first proof that will be signed off by both us the design agency and you the client. The proofing process ensures that the end result in your brands environment is communicating accurately to its audience for the duration of the campaign or booked media dates.
- Production artwork – Once the first proof is approved we enter into the production stage of the artwork or signage. COG Design works collaboratively alongside COG Print. COG Print offers a wide range of commercial printers that print, deliver and support all types of environmental design projects.
- Print Management – Via our partners at COG Print, we manage the entire design, print and delivery process. No job is too big or too small!
